Understanding Consent in Healthcare Environments

Understanding Consent in Healthcare Environments

Explaining key elements and legalities around consent to promote clearer understanding and application

Consent is a principle that forms part of medical ethics and human rights law. It is needed regardless of the care/treatment involved and should be obtained before any care/treatment begins.

In this course, we will look at the various considerations surrounding consent (so that individuals have a clear understanding of the key elements that may affect their role or responsibilities).

The course therefore covers the following key elements:

  • What is Consent
  • UK Law and Consent
  • The Need for Consent
  • How Capacity is Assessed
  • Advance Decisions and Power of Attorney
  • Consent and Life-sustaining Treatments
  • Vulnerable Adults and Consent
  • Responding to Requests or Questions
  • Children, Young Adults and Consent

    In contrast to classes attended regarding child protection, this e-learning course was more in-depth, accessible, and compulsory engagement required due to test . Attended classes can have a passive attendance quality as there is no test, so that you can see people passing the time on their mobile phones!!

    The e-learning course - the flow chart was useful for people like me (A&E junior nurse) as well as the case study. This will influence my practice.
