The Duty to Disclose: How Much Information Is Too Much? 

Professor Susan Bewley (Professor of Complex Obstetrics, Kings College London) and Mr Colm McGrath (WYNG Research Fellow in Medical Law & Ethics, Cambridge University) will be speaking at a seminar hosted by the Northern Ireland Forum for Ethics in Medicine and Healthcare on 21 June 2016. The seminar will consider what the Montgomery-v-Lanarkshire case and the duty to disclose means for clinical practice, including:

  • How much information does a woman need in order to enable her to make informed choices about pregnancy and birth?
  • How much information is too much information and how much is not enough?
  • How do health care professionals manage requests for care when a woman has made an informed choice?
  • What happens if the woman’s choice is not the choice that professionals would wish her to make?

The seminar will be held at the Senate Room, Lanyon Building, Queen's University Belfast.
