Welcome Message

  • Eileen Soraya

    Dear Delegates

    It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that the Committee looks forward to welcoming you to The MLSM Regional Medico-Legal Conference 2020. The Medico-Legal Society of Malaysia was established more than 40 years ago and comprise of legal and healthcare professionals. For this year's conference, we decided to focus on issues that have a common thread throughout Southeast Asia. It is perhaps cliche to say that we are all connected to one another. I do believe however that in Southeast Asia, that connection is one that is strong and unique. Modelling laws based carte blanche on western models may not thus, always achieve its objectives.

    This year's conference is an opportunity to not only celebrate all that makes us Asian, but also to network and form partnerships within the region and hold in-depth discussions about important issues and reforms that will affect the delivery of justice and healthcare in the region.

    We will have special addresses by the Director-General of Health of Malaysia and the Senior Minister of State of the Ministry of Law and Health in Singapore. We will also be discussing "Consent in Asian Patients" and the implications of "Religious and Cultural Considerations in Medical Decision-Making".

    There will also be a Medico-Legal 101 forum that will be held at the end of Day 2 which can be attended by delegates of the main conference at a special rate. You can also sign up separately for this forum, if you wish to do so.

    Another special feature of the conference this year will be an "Art in Mind" corner that is designed to display art and creative expressions to create awareness of mental health issues and facilitate its de-stigmatisation.

    The conference is aimed to update and provoke thought. If you are involved in either the legal or healthcare industry in the region, you would want to sign up and be part of this experience!

    I can't wait to say "Selamat Datang" to you in person!
