Third Edition of the Natmedipedia - July 2019

Welcome to the Third Edition of the Natmedipedia, Natmed’s Glossary of Medical Negligence and Insurance Terms. This latest edition has been expanded to include 65 new definitions.

Natmedipedia 3rd Edition

This is neither a legal nor a medical dictionary. It is a plain language glossary and guide to common medical negligence and insurance terms for healthcare practitioners, healthcare facility operators and medical negligence insurers and brokers.

This is one of Natmed’s contributions to the health and insurance industries, supporting our popular “What If” series, our "Medical Defence Review", Ten Takeaways series, Natmed’s Annual Survey of Medical Malpractice Judgments of 2018 and Natmed’s Understanding Medical Malpractice Insurance in South Africa.
