Informed consent e-learning activity

Consent is a common area of concern for our Members. This education activity focuses on issues relating to consent conversations where gaps in education and knowledge have been identified.

Complete the activity to more confidently facilitate an informed consent process for medical treatment that leads to optimal patient understanding and decision-making.

In the online session you'll join general practitioner and medical educator, Dr Genevieve Yates to explore this topic through illustrative case scenarios. The activity is an opportunity to anonymously compare your thoughts regarding informed consent with the opinions of other doctors and medico-legal experts.

The activity provides practical advice on:

  • documentation
  • determining patient capacity to consent
  • consent with children and mature minors
  • shared decision-making.
