Webinar overview

Are questions over the affordability of implementing digital consent misplaced? Isn’t the real question, can they afford the risk of not doing so?

  • outline  from experience, organisational, healthcare clinicians/professionals and patient’s benefits including cost/time saving, clinical error reduction and comprehensive patient/family procedure understanding
  • clarify avoidable risks, potential outcomes and impacts from not digitising (or delaying) the process
