Hossain Mohammad Reza, Mediation of Health Disputes to Optimise Patient Safety in Bangladesh, 21 Austl. J. Asian L. (2021):
Legal procedures for medical negligence disputes in Bangladesh fall far short of providing legal redress conforming with patient safety. This paper argues that mediation could be an effective tool for settling such disputes and achieving higher quality health care. I argue that, in addition to providing optimal legal redress for patient injury, mediation, as a non-adversarial approach, would allow health care professionals to disclose shortfalls in the present health care system, which could be used to enhance patient safety.
