Medical Council produces first online videocast

21st September 2010

The Medical Council has produced its first videocast. The videocast, which has gone online today, features Medical Council President, Professor Kieran Murphy and Chair of the Medical Council's Ethics Committee, Dr Deirdre Madden, taking viewers through the 7th edition of the Guide to Professional Conduct and Ethics for Registered Medical Practitioners.

The Medical Council is committed to sharing information with patients about their rights and about the responsibilities of doctors. This form of communication is new to Council and, in bringing this information to the public, it is hoped to provide clarity to a wider audience. Creating greater awareness of its activities will help the Council to protect the public by promoting and ensuring the highest professional standards among doctors.
