Through a comprehensive legal analysis and review of the Act’s provisions, alongside an examination of scholarly literature on AI use risks and benefits, negligence standards, and barriers to negligence claims, several gaps were identified. The Act lacks binding regulations on transparent AI use and liability measures necessary to protect patients. Additionally, the interpretation of negligence standards varies across different regions, and significant social barriers deter the pursuit of claims. This research represents an early legal analysis of AI oversight in the Ghanaian mental healthcare context and introduces a novel framework for assessing barriers to accessibility in negligence claims related to AI use. The findings can inform policy reforms concerning AI use standards and liability in mental healthcare and provide evidence to improve access to justice in mental health-related negligence cases. Recommendations include enacting stringent privacy and consent requirements for AI systems, standardizing minimum care duties across healthcare facilities, removing unreasonable claim caps, and funding access to legal representation. While the Mental Health Act has established some foundational protections, significant gaps remain regarding emerging risks associated with AI use in mental healthcare. Addressing these gaps through comprehensive updates is essential for enhancing both AI regulation and negligence protections.</p> George Benneh Mensah, Maad M M.

The objective of this study is to propose a methodology to contribute to the development of investigative skills in students pursuing a bachelor’s degree in health rehabilitation. The methodology used in this research is a predominantly quantitative research strategy followed, at an explanatory level, by applying different methods at the theoretical and empirical levels. As a result, the actions established in each of the stages of the methodology stand out as an element of change within the scientific result. The study concluded that the validity of the methodology was corroborated by the criteria of experts, who stated that it was very appropriate, and the development of a pre-experiment with the students of Sancti Spiritus Medical Sciences University, where it was demonstrated that the development of investigative skills towards health rehabilitation careers was achieved.</p> Adrian González Méndez, Maytee Suárez Pedroso, Berto Delis Conde Fernández, Deibis Buchaca Machado Copyright (c) 2024 Authors https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://journals.tultech.eu/index.php/ijitis/article/view/170 Fri, 21 Jun 2024 00:00:00 +0200
