Association of Anatomical Pathology Technology


6th Annual Consent Training Day

The AAPT were delighted to run a 6th annual consent training event in liaison with the Human Tissue Authority (HTA) who provided an excellent speaker, and former APT, Charlotte John. This was led by AAPT Council member Lydia Judge-Kronis.

A cross section of the healthcare workforce were in attendance: anatomical pathology technologists, consultants, biomedical scientists and bereavement officers.  By the end of the training, participants will through lectures and practical workshops:

  • Have knowledge of the HTA Codes for Consent
  • have knowledge of the post mortem consent process
  • have practical experience of dealing with consent issues
  • be able to facilitate the consent process with N.O.K and clinician
  • be able to inform their Trust of consent procedures and best practice
  • be able to help set up a consent process

It is expected this will continue to be an annual fixture in the AAPT CPD meeting calendar.
