It provides strategies for ensuring informed consent is obtained from the woman herself, with supported decision-making or in some situations, supported by a guardian.
- Definitions of informed consent and their application to maternity care
- Apply the concepts of informed consent in maternity services in situations where a woman has a disability
- Strategies to ensure consent is informed where disabilities may affect the woman’s understanding of information
- Understand the process when consent is required by a guardian for the woman.
Who is this for?
