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

Learning Outcomes

  • 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.

Speaker: Prof Janet Wilson, Emerita Prof of Otolaryngology, Newcastle University & Council Member RCSEd.
