Otago Bioethics Centre invites you to attend a Bioethics seminar on Monday 23 May 2022, at 1.00-1.50 pm.
Meeting ID: https://otago.zoom.us/j/922351556
Associate Professor Ben Gray (Department of Primary Health Care and General Practice, University of Otago) will speak about Consent for Teaching considering the following:
Consent for teaching was introduced as a result of the Cartwright Inquiry and is part of the Health and Disability Code of Health and Disability Consumer Rights. A consensus statement developed by the Otago and Auckland medical schools states that the need to gain consent cannot be set aside on the grounds of inadequate time or resources. This viewpoint argues that a singular focus on patient experience whilst ignoring the other elements of the quality framework is not appropriate. Consent is a poor word in most circumstances to describe the complex interaction with a patient over time. Rather than strengthening codes of behaviour an approach of focussing on cultural safety holds more promise.
Associate Professor Ben Gray convenes the Professional Development and Ethics module for undergraduate medical students in Wellington.
[Due to current restrictions under the Covid-19 Protection Framework, this seminar will take place online via Zoom. The organisers ask that you please mute yourself on arrival to avoid accidental interruptions]
