Decision making and consent: have your say on guidance for doctors

Section: Policy into Practice Location: Glasgow City Date of event: 16/01/2019 at 10:30

We are hosting a joint event to consider revised guidance which explains what good practice in consent and decision making looks like.

The ALLIANCE and the General Medical Council (GMC) are hosting a joint event in Glasgow to consider revised guidance, which the GMC are consulting on, which sets out what doctors should consider when discussing treatment and care with people who use support and services.

The GMC’s role is to protect people who use support and services and improve medical education and practice across the UK. They want to hear what people think about the guidance so that they can make sure the final version supports them to have good conversations with their doctors. Whilst the guidance is for doctors, the GMC would also like to understand how people using support and services can be better supported in this area.

A draft version of the guidance has been published on the GMC’s website for your consideration (this link will take you away from our website), alongside a full questionnaire and a shorter one aimed at patients.

We would like to invite individual members of the ALLIANCE, representatives of organisations who work in health and social care and other interested people to attend the meeting.
