Informed Consent in Clinical Practice

M&K Update Ltd
Delivery Method: Blended

Course Overview

Consent is at the heart of all interactions with patients/clients requiring healthcare. The delivery of healthcare is complex requiring many Healthcare professionals to interact & engage with the patient. The process of obtaining consent is not as straightforward as it might seem given recent judicial decisions (Montgomery v Lanarkshire Health Board 2015) & (Amendments to the Mental Capacity Act 2005).

This one-day course equips you to fully understand your role in the consenting process and matters that you need to take into consideration in order for the consent to be valid.

The course is of interest to all Healthcare Professionals, Healthcare Support Workers and any other providers of healthcare.
