The Collaborating Centre for Values-based Practice and the Nuffield Department of Surgical Sciences invite you to attend this one-day conference.

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.

Confirmed Speakers include:

Baroness Hale, Deputy President of the Supreme Court and one of the Montgomery judges

Professor Jonathan Herring, Professor of Law, University of Oxford

Cost for the day (includes refreshment and lunch): £85 (by cheque, bank transfer, or credit card to St. Catherine’s College).
