Capacity, consent and medical treatment seminar
We are delighted to be hosting a seminar on the topic of consent, capacity and medical treatment which will take place on Thursday 15 February 2018 at the Merrion hotel, Dublin.
The seminar will address current medico-legal best practice in Ireland in relation to consent in medical treatment and will compare this with best practice in the UK. The Assisted Decision Making Act will come into law in Ireland shortly and we will also touch upon how this new Act will affect the taking of consent, the determination of capacity and what this means on the ground for practitioners.
The Seminar will be chaired and addressed by the President of the Medical Council of Ireland, Dr Freddie Wood.
Asim Sheikh BL and Joanne O'Sullivan will provide an analysis of the relevant legal decisions and practice issues and the high profile UK decision of Montgomery will also be examined and discussed. The Seminar aims to emphasise and focus on the practical aspects of consent and the lessons to be learnt and applied from law.
