Webinar: A guide to the consent process
Consent is a core component of surgical practice. Gaining a patient’s consent and documenting this sufficiently is an issue that often presents difficulties and highlights the need to tailor information to the patient’s individual needs. An inadequate consent process can damage the surgeon-patient relationship and can also result in legal challenges and litigation.
Tune into our webinar on Wednesday 1 April to receive practical advice on how to meet the legal and regulatory requirements around the consent process and how to protect a patient’s rights to make decisions about their treatment.
This webinar, chaired by senior Council members, supports our Good Surgical Practice Guide, released in 2016, which is a comprehensive and easy to follow guide for surgeons and the wider surgical team.
More details to follow.
