Expert/s: Tara Hunter

Listen to the episode


In this episode:

  • What is affirmative consent?
  • What do we need to do if a patient discloses an incident of non-consensual sexual encounter?
  • What help can we offer the person?
  • How should we exercise our duty of care and obligation?
  • Sometimes we may be overwhelmed by what we hear and what we think we need to do, but it really is less complex than that.
