1 MICG MEDICAL NEGLIGENCE,MEDIATION AND MEDICAL RECORDS UPKEEPING CONFERENCE 2011 UPDATES IN CURRENT MEDICO - LEGAL ISSUES TO SAFEGUARD AGAINST CLAIMS AND LITIGATION The increasing number of medical negligence cases is a cause for concern for the legal and medical fraternity.

In the new age of electronic data, upkeep and proper management of medical records must be maintained. By attending this conference your organisation will gain more information and knowledge in reducing the risk of being exposed to medical negligence cases from distinguished speakers who are expert in the field of medico - legal issues. 28TH.
