​Claudia Carr is a Senior Lecturer in Medical Law and Ethics at the University of Hertfordshire, having spent the early part of her career in a medical negligence defence practice in the West End of London. She is the author of several books on Medical Law and Ethics, written in an accessible manner for law students, non-law students and healthcare professionals alike. Her research interests revolve around end of life although since the Montgomery judgement in 2015, she has focused more on informed consent and the effect of the judgement on pharmacists and patients with learning disability.

 

Claudia will discuss the importance of informed consent when treating patients which is far more significant post Montgomery, since breach of the standard set down in the judgement can result in a breach of duty of care, and if causation is proved, negligence and damages payable to the claimant. Claudia won’t belabour this point unduly and will focus on the requirements of the duty and give delegates the space to decide how that would play out in practice. There will be the opportunity to ask questions and Claudia will address any perceived difficulties regarding the judgement.

We shall complete the evening by having dinner a local eatery.  Please join us!
