What is informed consent?

Informed consent is a process for getting permission before conducting a healthcare intervention on a person, or for disclosing personal information. A health care provider may ask a patient to consent to receive therapy before providing it, or a clinical researcher may ask a research participant before enrolling that person into a clinical trial. Informed consent is collected according to guidelines from the fields of medical ethics and research ethics.

Informed consent can be said to have been given based upon an evident appreciation and understanding of the facts, implications, and consequences of an action. Adequate informed consent is rooted in respecting a person’s dignity. To give informed consent, the individual concerned must have appropriate reasoning faculties and have all relevant facts. Impairments to reasoning and judgment that may prevent informed consent include basic intellectual or emotional immaturity, high levels of stress such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or severe intellectual disability, severe mental disorder, intoxication, severe sleep deprivation, Alzheimer’s disease, or being in a coma.

Why is online Informed Consent training course essential in health and social care?

It is fundamental in health and care that the person receiving the care or treatment, i.e. the patient/client, agrees to receive it. That is that he or she provides informed consent to receiving the care or treatment. By ‘informed’ we mean that the patient/client understands exactly what is going to happen because you or a senior colleague have explained it in a way that he or she can easily understand.

Our online Informed Consent in Health and Social Care training course covers the legal and professional responsibilities relating to informed consent.

  • Keeping employee skills up-to-date.
  • Maintaining professional standards.
  • Building employee confidence.

For employees, CPD helps to keep their knowledge and skills up-to-date. It also contributes to maintaining the professional standard of their qualifications, registrations and sense of direction.
Moreover, completing CPD helps employees to build their confidence and credibility. It empowers them to showcase their achievements and provides them with tools to cope with change positively.
In most sectors, CPD is beneficial for employees’ career progression and advancement. Many studies have found that evidence of CPD improves career prospects, such as promotions or specialism. In real terms, this means that CPD contributes to achieving job satisfaction and higher salaries.
CPD Banner - CPDUK Accredited - Learnpac System UK -

For employers, the main advantage of CPD is the security of sustaining high standards across the whole organisation. CPD can help ensure consistent standards to meet regulatory and statutory requirements.
It also improves employees’ commitment to their job roles and promotes greater work engagement from the workforce. Organisations that provide CPD, whether concurrently or over some time, allows for the sharing of best practice and support. Also, it contributes to maximising staff potential, improving staff morale and providing a useful benchmark for annual appraisals.

The Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual) is a non-ministerial government department (HM Government) that regulates qualifications, examinations and tests/assessments in England and, until May 2016, vocational qualifications in Northern Ireland.
Colloquially and publicly, Ofqual is often referred to as the exam “watchdog”.
Ofqual regulates all the awarding bodies in the UK.

The Department for Children, Education, Lifelong Learning and Skills is an established subdivision of the Welsh Government. It is responsible for education, training and children’s services in Wales under powers devolved from the Department for Children, Schools and Families of the UK government under Schedule 5 of the Government of Wales Act 2006.
It is headed by the Minister for Education (Welsh Government).

All our statutory and mandatory training courses for health and social care are aligned to the UK Core Skills Training Framework (CSTF).
CPD Banner - CPDUK Accredited - Learnpac System UK -

With a highly mobile workforce, health and social care employers often need to identify recruits’ previous statutory and mandatory training. Where the training information is lacking, some staff can repeat training unnecessarily, wasting time and money.
The UK CSTF was launched in 2013 to address this issue. It allows health and social care employers to recognise statutory/mandatory training to a standard, trust that information and reduce duplication of training.
