Launch of new e-learning programme for medical experts
The EWI has given certification to an e-learning programme designed specifically for medical expert witnesses in civil litigation. This is the first time that the EWI has certified an e-learning programme and it has taken this important step when the quality of medical expert evidence in the litigation process is under intense scrutiny.
The programme consists of five modules and has been designed to specifically meet the needs of medical expert witnesses. It contains video presentations, detailed information, links to relevant documentation and other essential reading for medical expert witnesses reporting in civil claims
The e-learning programme is produced by Professional Solutions, a leading expert witness training consultancy and Giles Eyre, Barrister and is based on their highly-regarded book for medical experts: Writing Medico Legal Reports in Civil Claims – An Essential Guide.
This exciting new programme is now available on-line for both EWI members and non-members and can be accessed though the EWI website.
“Achieving certification by the EWI on completion of the programme will be a public mark of the expert’s commitment to enhancing his or her skills and will have real value. I am delighted that the EWI is associated with this important step in raising and maintaining standards”
James Badenoch QC, Chairman, Expert Witness Institute
