  • Review and discuss AMA (NSW)’s suite of contracts for private practice employees, including:
    • how they help protect your practice

    • what they say (and why)
    • which one to choose (and when)
    • how to implement them in a manner appropriate for your practice
    • the importance of ongoing review of contracts.
