“Recognise the requirements for reportable deaths”
Every State and Territory has had a Coroner since Federation. Each State had similar legislation governing when, why and how a coronial inquest must be undertaken.
Inquests are held in around 20 per cent of Coroner’s Inquiries, therefore there is a real chance a nurse may be called to be a witness. This is a source of anxiety as the coronial system, procedures and requirements are relatively unknown.
In this session you will:
- Understand the legislation governing inquests
- Recognise the obligations of inquest witnesses
- Employ best-practice strategies to prepare to be a witness
- Appreciate the value of preparation for an inquest
