Being physical therapists / physiotherapists or healthcare professionals, we are fortunate for the care and support we provide and the roles we play in helping others. But did you ever consider that your role as a physiotherapist may leave the patient with an unpleasant experience? Do you always put yourself in your patient’s shoes? Do you think you always know what's best for your patients? In this course you will learn about informed consent in light of ethical and moral practice. It will leave you reflecting on your clinical practice, how to include your patients in the decision-making process and how to respect their autonomy and dignity.


Roger Kerry, a physiotherapist and an associate professor in the University of Nottingham, introduces informed consent in clinical practice and highlights the bioethical and legal foundations with practicality and application in mind.
