Webcast: Can your patient consent to treatment?

Can your patient consent to treatment?

Have you ever worried whether a patient can truly understand the treatment options you are outlining? Has a patient seemed confused one day, but not the next? How can you assess whether they have understood your advice, and can they truly give valid consent to their treatment?

This is your opportunity to learn who can give consent if a patient is unable to, and how to obtain it in practice.
