Content available to premium subscribers only
70 mins CPD/CE

Aims and objectives:

Gain an understanding of the legal update in general practice, taking into consideration:

  • An update of the current differences between Bolam and Montgomery, and how they relate to treatment and consent differently
  • Understand the grey areas of consent and how manipulative marketing and communication styles may have an impact on this
  • Understand the difference between Bolam and Montgomery and how you may still be negligent even if you have adhered to Bolam, but not Montgomery
  • Understand how consent is a process and not a one-off event, and how this might be relevant if patients have ‘buyer remorse’, meaning consent is no longer valid, even though the treatment has been provided without any issues
