This talk will focus on the non-obvious implications of the Montgomery decision. For example it will identify the less obvious range of situations to which the Montgomery decision is likely to apply, and also the less obvious practitioners who are likely to be affected.

Colm will present the view that Montgomery is likely to be relevant to a broad range of communications within a patient’s healthcare experience (not merely disclosures about the riskiness of a particular surgery or treatment) and that as such it will affect healthcare professionals other than doctors.

Colm's presentation will conclude with a discussion of the recent Court of Appeal decision in Worrall v Antoniadou and the extent to which a practitioner must ensure a patient’s comprehension of information that is disclosed.
