“We have to think much more carefully about consent to treatment post lanarkshire” Dame Fiona Caldicott, 6th October 2015
This conference focuses on effective consent practice following the Supreme Court judgement in March 2015 in the case of Montgomery v Lanarkshire Health Board.
The conference will include extended legal and practical updates on the new duty to explain risks to patients and what the supreme court judgement means for your practice and service, understanding decision making within the consent process, individualising consent and communication of risk, capacity and consent and legal issues surrounding children, older people, vulnerable adults, pregnant women and people will mental illness or learning disability, consent in a nurse led service and consent and refusal of treatment. The conference will also feature an extended role play session on patient centred consent demonstrating how the new principles can be embedded into robust consent practice.
