Here at AfPP our members are at the heart of everything we do. We’re constantly looking for ways to support you and we’re always happy to hear how we can improve your membership experience. One of the ways we do this is with our Saturday Sessions Webinars.
The previous webinars are available to watch here.
At the beginning of the first lockdown in March, we cancelled our face to face study days and our Annual Conference. Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, our priority has been to continue to support our members as much as possible.
In June last year we introduced a programme of webinars to support your educational needs and provide you with CPD hours. We were delighted to be able to offer these free of charge throughout the whole of 2020. However, AfPP is a charitable organisation and it simply is not possible for us to provide on and offline events free indefinitely. Therefore we have taken the decision that during 2021 our webinars will be charged at a nominal hourly rate of £5 for AfPP members, and £10 for non-members. Student members will get webinars free.
We are committed to offering relevant topics during the course of this year. If there are any topics you are particularly interested in us considering, please let us know.
3 July: Informed Consent: Are we hearing the patient's voice in team decision making? 1 Hour CPD
As healthcare professionals we recognise that consent for surgical interventions is not merely the signing of a form. In this session delegates will gain better understanding of consent sharing discussions. As we know today’s patients are generally better informed and have greater access to medical information. Empowerment of the patient, informed consent and shared quality decision making in the consent process offers a more collaborative patient-centred experience, giving patients the opportunity to understand the risks and discuss all treatment options. So, are we truly hearing the patients voice?
This webinar is sponsored by BD.
- Understanding management, around issues of consent.
- Recognise the importance and relevance of the Montgomery legislation in the model of shared decision making.
- Gain insight around empowerment of the patient in informed consent.
- Be able to explore issues around extended roles in shared decision making.
