HSE National Consent Policy – Podcast on Consent

In the latest episode of the HSE Talking Health and Wellbeing Podcast, host Fergal Fox and guest Elaine McCaughley from the HSE National Office for Human Rights and Equality discuss the HSE’s National Consent Policy. Elaine emphasises the policy’s focus on the person making their own decisions about their health and social care, ensuring informed and voluntary consent. They explore challenges in mental health services and the role of family in cases like dementia, highlighting the human rights-based approach to care and the respect for individual autonomy and decision-making capacity.
