The GOsC are consulting about changes to the structure of Continuing Professional Development. One compulsory element they are consulting about is that every osteopath should complete some CPD on communication and consent as this is a priority area - apart from anything else it is central to most complaints that the GOsC receive from patients.
This course involves a morning session on communication and consent with Mark Waters who has taught on this subject for a number of years. The two afternoon sessions focus on communication and consent with specific patient groups. One speaker will be considering patients with dementia, Alzheimer's and/or limited capacity, and the second speaker will be presenting on issues surrounding communication and consent with children and their parents.
The day offers a great chance for you to refresh your skills, and share experiences with fellow osteopaths.
