(Kotor, 20–22 May, 2016)


We have the pleasure to invite you to participate at this Specialist Seminar (hereinafter: Seminar), devoted to the most topical problems and improvement of knowledge about legal aspects of the doctor-patient relationship. Although seemingly clear, the doctor-patient relationship is actually developing as well as theoretic views about it and the necessity for its improvement. National and international legislation governing this area is also being developed and health professionals are faced with increasing demands in terms of their obligations in the relationship with patients.

The same refers to patients: the more rights they gain, the more duties they have.


General objective of this programme of education is, accordingly, to provide directors and managers of health institutions as well as other health professionals with required knowledge and skills needed for observing, assessing and applying the legal and ethical principles and regulatory framework for optimum functioning of the health systems. Acquiring these skills will help you enhance your own professional practice as well as the performance of health institutions.
