This session looks at aspects of consent in medicine. It starts by looking at consent in research before focussing on consent to treatment. It examines what happens before the age of consent and what can be done when consent is refused. Consent in the case of people with learning difficulties is then explored and the session finishes with how a person can retain autonomy in advance, in circumstances in which they may become incompetent, by writing a living will.


By the end of this session you will be able to:
• Discuss the issue of consent in research
• Obtain consent to treat a child under 16 and discuss the options when a competent minor refuses treatment
• Describe the principles of consent
• Discuss the nature of competency with regard to consent
