In this episode of the Law Down under Podcast, we interview Emeritus Professor Ron Paterson about his book The Good Doctor and his career in tertiary education and public service roles. We talk about what drew him to health law and a career teaching at the University of Auckland. Ron has been a lecturer and then professor at the University of Auckland for over two decades, and has done extensive research in complaint resolution, inquiries, healthcare quality and the regulation of the health profession. We then talk about his career in public services roles, particularly as Ombudsman and Health and Disability Commissioner, and what those roles taught him for the government policy advisory reviews he has been involved in and led. This is a captivating chat with one of the most qualified and experienced people in health law and policy. This is a must-listen episode for those interested in health law, particularly in the COVID 19 era. I hope you enjoy this episode with Ron Paterson.
