Liam Convie, a surgical registrar, and research fellow based at Queen’s University Belfast, Centre for Public Health is currently undertaking research designed to determine how the effects of a consent process should be evaluated in adult patients with capacity, consenting for surgical procedures.
Part of this process involves building consensus about which outcomes are most important to measure in order to determine if the consent process has been good quality or not.
The survey can be completed by both trainees and consultant surgeons. Round 1 of the Delphi survey will be open until 31st January. The survey is accessed here, and the full protocol is available here.
