Learn all you need to know about giving patients informed consent correctly on this accredited course, mastering conversations on consent.
Every medic should be having honest discussions with their patients about risks since the landmark Montgomery v Lanarkshire (2015) case changed the law.
The comprehensive one-day course covers:
an overview of your obligations
practical tips on how to apply the legal principals to day to day practice
best practice from case studies and shared experiences
the legal requirements that underpin complex cases
This course is suitable for all healthcare professionals and lawyers with an interest in medical law.
Through roleplay sessions with the country’s top medico-legal experts you will practise effective shared decision-making and take part in informed consent conversations, which we will video.
You can also take part in an interactive session using case studies to discuss the legal test and to determine whether consent is obtained correctly.
During the summary, you’ll have the chance to put your questions directly to our experts.
