Informed Consent and Decision Making: The Code of Medical Ethics is organized by American Medical Association (AMA) and will be held from Oct 02, 2017 - Oct 02, 2020.
The target audience for this medical event is practicing physicians, health care policy workers, medical students and residents interested in AMA ethics policy. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.
This e-learning module incorporates animation, infographics, and scenario-based learning to help physicians identify the standard process of informed consent, how to handle situations when patients cannot give informed consent, and issues related to informed consent in special situations. The right of a patient to participate in decisions about their medical care and give consent to treatment are central to both professional ethics and law, and the AMA Code of Medical Ethics provides important guidance in this area. Practising physicians will find this module, which is divided into four distinct micro-modules, provides essential guidance in a straightforward, understandable manner. Progress can be saved while taking this course, which lends itself to self-paced learning.
