Consent for Health & Social Care Professionals - Level 2 - Online Course - CPD Accredited.

Welcome to The Mandatory Training Group's online Consent in Health and Social Care online training course for front-line healthcare and social care providers. All our online training courses, programmes and qualifications are accredited by the CPD Certification Service (CPDUK).

It is fundamental in health and care that the person receiving the care or treatment, i.e. the patient/client/service user agrees to receive it. That is that he or she provides informed consent to receiving the care or treatment.

By ‘informed’ we mean that the patient/client/service user understands exactly what is going to happen because you or a senior colleague have explained it in a way that he or she can easily understand.
