BACKGROUND TO THE 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 one-day conference aims to raise awareness of the new Montgomery
standard for consent and to explore its implications from key stakeholder
perspectives.`

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
By attending this conference you will:
• Gain a deeper understanding of the new Montgomery standard for
consent
• Explore some of the key challenges involved in putting it into practice
• Contribute to ideas for meeting these challenges
