in association with
8 years on from the landmark decision in Montgomery v Lanarkshire Health Board, consent to treatment issues present huge challenges to busy clinicians and feature heavily in clinical negligence claims brought by patients. How can the challenge of achieving informed decision making be met?
Join us at The Royal College of Anaesthetists for this in person conference on Consent to Treatment.
Our speakers and panellists include:
- Mr Edward Bishop KC, Deka Chambers
- Dr Alex Crowe, Consultant Nephrologist and Deputy Director of Safety and Learning NHS Resolution
- Mr John Machin, Orthopaedic Surgeon and Clinical Lead for Litigation, GIRFT
- Dr Louise Austin, Lecturer in Law, University of Cardiff
- Miss Bahar Mirshekar, General Surgeon (with a special interest in oncoplastic breast surgery)
- Professor Emily Jackson, London School of Economics (Medical law and ethics)
- Dr Andrew Demetri, Academic Clinical Fellow and Registrar Doctor in Obstetrics and Gynaecology
- Ms Yael Bradbury, General Medical Council (Policy Adviser/Policy Manager in the Standards & Ethics team)
The panel will be considering the important questions:
- How has the law evolved since Montgomery - are clinicians meeting legal expectations?
- How do patients exercise choice? What are the differences between Patients and Consumers?
- What are the practical challenges to achieving informed consent?
- What does the research tell us about medical consent and what is the international picture?
- What does the GMC’s guidance say about decision making and consent and how important is terminology?
- What resources are available and being developed to support clinical practice?
