Case Law Updates

Health Legal also publishes a Case Law Update. Each quarter we summarise the key cases that have considered the legislation that impacts on our clients, as well as other areas of risk.

This Case Law Update reflects the requirements of NSQHS Standard 1.7, which require organisations to be kept regularly and reliably updated on relevant case law.

In addition to the areas covered by the Compliance Register, the Case Law Update covers new case law throughout Australia in relation to:

  • Consent and informed decision-making
  • Medical negligence
  • Contracts
  • Clinical and corporate governance.
