The Dietetic Practice Council (DPC) at Toronto Public Health is hosting one of the College of Dietitians of Ontario's (CDO) annual workshops on Unpacking Consent: Regulatory & Professional Obligations for Dietetic Practice. This workshop will be tailored to Public Health Dietitians and CDO will be serving light refreshments. The DPC has extended an invitation to our local Public Health colleagues.
The 2016 CDO workshops will dive deep into the topic of consent. Participants will learn about the new Standards for Consent by applying them to dietetic practice situations. For example, have you ever been in a situation where you are unsure of your responsibilities for consent? When do you need consent? Who gives consent? When should you document consent? Is consent required for providing group education, communicating online, using social media, and collecting, using and sharing information? Learn how the concepts of consent can advance client-centred care and contribute to preceptoring students.
The DPC is managing the registration for this event; your CDO registration number is required. Please do not contact CDO regarding this workshop.
