UTS - Consumer interviews for defensive medical practice research project

University of Technology Sydney
The University of Technology Sydney (UTS) is undertaking a research project with the aim of finding out about the drivers of defensive practice in healthcare, barriers to reducing such practices, and potential solutions. Defensive practice refers to ordering tests and procedures, making referrals and prescribing drugs mainly to reduce perceived legal risks, rather than to advance patient care. These risks include lawsuits and complaints. As part of this research study on defensive medical practice, consumer representatives are invited to participate in an interview.
