Medicus Matters Dec Issue

We've got you covered!

In this issue we look at clinical leadership as well as capacity, cognition and the

importance in understanding the difference.

Congratulations on being a member of Medicus and welcome to our end-of-year

newsletter! The Medicus membership allows you access to a professional

indemnity package which brings a level of certainty regarding the cover you carry

with it. The medico-legal landscape has been changing in New Zealand for some

years and will continue to change. Responsibility and accountability have become

catchphrases in our society. Doing your best is no longer considered adequate.

Despite serious time and resource constraints, the public’s expectations of

healthcare delivery and healthcare professionals continue to climb. Calls for

compensation and awards of damages will more than likely become a feature of

the future landscape.

Now is the time to protect ourselves with an insurance product, not merely with

the cover of a Mutual Society. You are not a member of Medicus because we just

happened to be there when you graduated. You made a choice. Help others do

the same. Keep them safe too.

Finally, Christmas is fast approaching. Let us all look forward to some rest and

peace through the holiday period. Your Medicus board wishes everyone a Merry

Xmas and a Happy and Safe New Year!
