About this Webinar

A webinar exploring legal and technical issues surrounding causation and coronary artery disease.

The content is split into three parts. The first part is a presentation by Per Laleng, an academic at the University of Kent, on the law of causation with particular reference to the application of Bailey v MoD.

The second part involves a presentation by Professor Kevin Channer on coronary artery disease and is followed by an interactive session where Professor Channer and Dr Stephen Saltissi provide evidence on a ‘hot-tubbing’ basis. The evidence explores causation in a fatal claim involving an alleged case of death caused by coronary artery disease. The trial provides a platform for analysis and discussion of both legal and technical issues in clinical negligence cases generally, and cardiac cases specifically.
