The IX. Med. Et Jur. Conference was held on May 18, 2017, continuing the conversation started in last November about the damage fee and the litigations on medical malpractices. At first the presentations of the lawyer’s side (defendant and demandant) were delivered, after that we could listen to the presentations of judge’s side. At the end of the event, different views were faced within the confines of a round table discussion. The organising Right to the Health Foundation, its quarterly journal the Med Et Jur, and also the conferences are supported by Szinapszis Ltd. as a prominent partner.


Useful knowledge for physicians and heads of healthcare institutions


Since 2008, the Right to the Health Foundation has been organising the „Appreciated Liability” conference primarily for health care professionals and heads of medical institutions. The physician society is not adequately informed of its rights and obligations, but for many years the number and amount of damage claims in connection with health services have been increasing. The purpose of the conferences is to provide doctors and healthcare institutions with relevant information on the relevant legislation and provisions affecting them and on their changes, as well as providing information on the legal environment in which they should be engaged in professional work and on possible sanctions they can expect.



What was the event about?


In the morning the presentations of the lawyers were delivered, that was continued with a buffet lunch.
