Specialist Medical knowledge is the domain of Specialist Medical Practitioners.
However, the ability to utilise specialist medical knowledge to advantage in legal jurisdictions requires an entirely different mindset from that available from most medical practitioners.
Requiring not only intimate medical knowledge and medical research capabilities, the capacity to distil multiple medical opinions and draw them into a cohesive legal argument, draws upon tangential thinking and radical analysis. Most doctors’ careers depend upon conservatism, knowledge that has achieved contemporary (and often fleeting) validity, and a rigid structure of thinking intended to achieve peer acceptance.
Extraordinary Analysis of medical opinion requires:
- An intimate understanding of the medical practitioner psyche.
- Knowledge of the social, political and regulatory frameworks that contribute to, if not dictate, a doctor’s opinion.
- Divorcing the validity of medical views from a doctor’s qualifications.
- An appreciation of the currency of medical opinion in Courts and Tribunals.
