Against a backdrop of a busy winter, ongoing COVID cases and changing legislation, we offer practical advice on how to avoid mistakes, as well as conflicts with patients or colleagues.

The latest in our ongoing series of free webinars covered two common but occasionally complicated topics - conflict resolution, and the duty of candour.

If you weren't able to catch them live, you can watch the recordings here.
