AAPT Consent Training Day 2016

On Friday 20th May 2016, the AAPT hosted another training day on issues involving consent.

The event is held in liaison with the Human Tissue Authority (HTA) and delegates came from many varied professions - APTs, biomedical scientists and those working in bereavement.

Practical scenario workshops encouraged delegates to interact across professional boundaries.

Delegates will now have:

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

Thank you Veronica Kourtellaris FAAPT for her help in facilitating the practical workshops!
