"Something's not quite right: when the patient's account conflicts with objective evidence."
Occupational physicians may find themselves occasionally dealing with patients where the individual’s subjective account differs from other objective evidence. What should we do in these circumstances?
The South Wales and West of England SOM group will deliver a day’s programme focused on this difficulty. We are planning to have presentations from:
- A forensic psychiatrist
- A psychologist
- An occupational physician talking about his experience with covert surveillance in insurance claims
- An occupational physician with many years’ experience in the insurance industry, and
- A spokesperson from the GMC, clarifying our duties as doctors in this tricky area.
Full programme details to follow.
Please contact: Sam.Butter@som.org.uk to express your interest.
