Dr Mick Serpell is a consultant and senior lecturer at the University Department of Anaesthesia, Gartnavel General Hospital, Glasgow. He qualified from Dundee University where he undertook most of his anaesthetic training. He specialized in regional anaesthesia and pain management at Orebro, Sweden, and Dartmouth-Hitchcock, NH, USA.
His presentation will consider chronic pain and justice, and as there is little written about it, he discusses justice from a practical standpoint. When patients are seeking justice, they are after three things, a fair process, empathy and a non judgemental approach.
