Surgical Waiting Lists - Elective Care Webinar Hosted By Professor Alf Collins

Ensuring everyone waiting has made an informed decision

Helping Patients Make Truly Informed Decisions To Proceed With Surgery

We would like to invite you and your team to take part in a free webinar on Friday 14th June (1pm to 2pm) to discuss the legal, professional and practical context for high quality decision making and informed consent within elective surgery. This webinar has been developed to help colleagues understand how to successfully implement decision making and consent in surgical pathways

We will discuss the benefits of high quality decision making for patients, practitioners, organisations and the wider system, such as:

  • For patients: more involvement in decisions, higher levels of satisfaction with care and less post-surgical regret
  • For clinicians: more satisfying consultations with patients, practice becomes aligned to GMC guidance and evidence based care
  • For the system: 5-15% reduction in decision to proceed to surgery, rising to 25-30% for those at high peri-operative risk. A reduction in litigation from ‘failure to inform’ of up to 80%

TPC Health are working in conjunction with Professor Alf Collins to help you build high quality decision making and consent practice into your organisation.

What our participants say

I honestly think the whole of our service should get this training. It is interesting to look at colleagues and patients with a different perspective during and after the course - I think for a lot of people it would be quite a big (and uncomfortable) shift in mindset and the way services are offered. The course has been brilliant and I am motivated to keep practicing and learning

If I went back and had to pick only one training of the many many I have done - this (Core Skills in Health Coaching) training would be the one I would pick. Practical tools to help people make changes. Thank you

Learning strategies on how to help change people’s behaviour by empowering them to realise they often have the experience, knowledge and answers to help resolve their problem with just some guidance. Much better way than me coming up with all the ideas and more inclusive/interactive!

I feel really empowered with new knowledge providing different ways of approaching everyday problems in the lives of others. It was a great opportunity to meet other professionals from other disciplines and share some same type problems or issues that affect our clientele.

I just wanted to say a big thank you for this fantastic course. This has been for me, the best consultation skills course I have ever been on and it was amazing to see how it can be done in the 10 minute consultation as demonstrated. I am going to feed it back to my practice so we can all put the skills into use. Thanks to you and the facilitators
