SEMPRIS are delighted to be supporting this one free one day conference hosted by Capsticks, exploring sport, medicine and the law.

As the commercial impact of elite sport has grown,  so too have the legal obligations and ethical dilemmas facing those who provide medical services to professional sportsmen and women. Litigation is relatively rare but when it does arise it can be costly on many levels and puts individuals, clubs and national governing bodies under microscopic scrutiny.

This conference is aimed at healthcare professionalsperformance directors and sport scientists working in elite sport, as well as those with legal responsibility within professional sports organisations. It will provide an overview of the medico-legal landscape that has developed in recent years and practical advice on how good governance in medical teams, and the organisations in which they operate, can protect everyone from mistakes and the potential litigation that may arise, from the athlete to the individual clinician and the wider organisation.

Key topics will include:

  • consent to treatment and providing athletes with medical information, concussion and return to play decisions,
  • data sharing and GDPR obligations,
  • effective communication and IT,
  • duty of care in sport and
  • risk management.

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Dr Michael Turner, CEO and Medical Director, at The International Concussion and Head Injury Research Foundation
  • Richard Booth, QC, 1 Crown Office Row Chambers
  • Dr James Brown, Benchmark54
  • Majid Hassan, Partner, Capsticks
