MPS Partnerships offers risk prevention through a range of options which could include:

Access to our online learning platform - Prism

Webinars and online learning

Our programme of webinars and interactive modules can be accessed anywhere at any time. They are hosted by experienced medical and dental professionals and feature question and answer sessions, bringing the expertise of our team directly to your organisation or team.

Our online learning platform Prism can also be tailored to your organisation’s needs by providing specific webinars and compulsory learning when required.


Workshops and masterclasses

Workshops and masterclasses provide professional development and help for your organisation to master communication and risk prevention.

Masterclasses tailored to your specialty

Our one day masterclasses involve a mix of short lectures, facilitated discussions and opportunities for reflection. This highly engaging and powerful programme includes working with actors in simulated cases that have been designed around the common and challenging needs of the target specialty group.

By the end of the masterclass attendees will be able to:

  • Understand the link between communication and litigation
  • Reduce exposure to complaints and litigation by better managing patient expectations and by improving verbal and non-verbal communication skills
  • Incorporate the skills of listening, reflection and checking on patient understanding
  • Improve skills required for shared decision making
  • Communicate regret and empathy with the patient’s situation following an adverse outcome and understand that this is not necessarily an admission of liability
  • Apply models for communicating with patients about adverse outcomes.


Our mastering workshops provide doctors or dentists with skills to combat the common causes of complaints and claims, developed through our 125 years' experience of supporting members. Our specially trained facilitators are all experienced clinicians who understand the complexities of your practice.

Each half day interactive workshop involves a mix of short lectures, videos, reflective exercises, group-facilitated discussions and small group rehearsal of skills. Participants are able to share experience and pool knowledge, enabling critical comparison of their skills with their peers to enhance learning.

We have a wide range of half-day workshops in the following categories:

  • Clinical risk management
  • Systems and processes
  • Communications and interpersonal skills
  • Professionalism and ethics
  • Medicolegal and dentolegal
