It will focus on the reach of informed consent into therapeutic research, diagnostics and investigations and its practical implications, informed by a litigation case study.

It will cover:

  • Consent in the context of therapeutic research:
    • the distinction between "medical treatment" and “research"
    • Information disclosure and the appropriate standard for consenting
  • The counselling process for diagnostics and investigations: 
    • Whether medical investigations to detect, diagnose or monitor disease processes (such as MRIs, X-rays, CT scans, biopsies, pregnancy tests, results from physical examinations) are covered by the Montgomery duty
  • Litigation case study - An analysis of  a real case where a claimant was the subject of two concurrently run clinical trials and was not consented adequately in respect of the trials
