The intended audience for this event includes:

Possibly confused about when and how you should obtain and document consent? Are you unsure if your current consent procedures meet recommended requirements?

You are not alone! Many dentists find their obligations around consent complicated and confusing. Consent for dental procedures is sometimes assumed rather than given and often poorly documented. The consequences of not correctly obtaining and documenting consent can vary from patient dissatisfaction to consumer and professional complaints proceedings, medico legal claims or, in the worst case scenario, civil legal proceedings. This course sets out to clarify the consent process and provide a take home framework for implementing clinical systems around obtaining and documenting consent in everyday dental practice.

  • What are the differences between valid consent, informed consent, and financial consent

Presented by Dr Craig Brown

  • Invalid consent – A medico legal perspective on what happens when consent is not correctly obtained.
