Course Summary

Informed Consent

Course Overview

Informed Consent has always been of vital importance to all healthcare practitioners but the case of Montgomery v Lanarkshire Health Board (2015) put clinicians’ practice of consenting patients back in to the spotlight; doctors can no longer rely on the Bolam test when deciding what information to give patients.  

This one-day course will clarify the principles of informed consent as well as provide an overview of the current law relating to treatment of those who lack capacity and who are unable to give informed consent. 

All delegates will have the opportunity to discuss their own areas of concern with an experienced healthcare lawyer. 

There will be practical guidance given on day-to-day record keeping.
