Montgomery and Me: Implementing the New Standard for Consent to Treatment in Medicine and Healthcare

The Supreme Court ruling Montgomery v Lanarkshire Health Board (2015) marked a shift in the basis of consent in medicine and healthcare from the established “prudent clinician” test to a “prudent patient” test. The new standard requires clinicians to enter into dialogue with their patients to the point that they gain sufficient understanding of the options available to make a choice that takes into account their own values.

This conference will raise your awareness of the new Montgomery standard for consent and to explore its implications from key stakeholders’ perspective.
