AMA(SA) Doctors in Training (DiT) Committee will be leading an intern teaching session on informed consent. In many health services interns do not consent for surgical procedures but may be asked to consent for blood transfusions or interventional radiology. Once interns move to resident level, they are expected to consent but there is a grey area around how appropriate that is for highly complex procedures. This workshop will cover details on how to take appropriate consents and when to ask for registrar or consultant input with a panel including a doctor in training and a relevant consultant to discuss some of the more complex aspects of consent.
