  • How much information does a woman need in order to enable her to make informed choices about pregnancy and birth?
  • How much information is too much information and how much is not enough?
  • How do health care professionals manage requests for care when a woman has made an informed choice?
  • What happens if the woman’s choice is not the choice that professionals would wish her to make?

Come to the Northern Ireland Ethics Forum discussion and find out what the Montgomery-v-Lanarkshire case and the duty to disclose means for clinical practice.
