We are POSITIVE that this is the class you’re most excited about for all of mentorship 😆JK! BUT surprise! It might actually be the most important! We encourage you to stick with this one as this will help you not only protect yourself, your license but also your patient’s birth experiences.

In this class, you will learn from different perspectives/experts to explain to us what shared decision-making and informed consent actually are, what it looks like in practice and what we are responsible for. Shared decision-making is the goal, and we believe that our role is right in the middle of that process, facilitating the needs of both the provider and patient. This is no easy task. We believe in you and believe you will do what’s right when it comes to shared decision-making. Baby steps. We are up against culture and system that doesn’t always do this perfectly, and that’s ok! You are accountable to yourself and your patients. Do your best! Utilize your resources, and speak up for what is right. Your influence in this process MATTERS, and you are not alone.

At the end of this course it is expected that the student can:


1) The student can describe their role and responsibility in the informed consent process. 

2) The student can differentiate between verbal, written and implied consent. 

3) The student can recognize the difference between informed consent and shared decision-making.

This class features Julie Cantor MD, JD and Pamela Hetrick CNM, expert witness for added value and learning.
