Photo and Video Consent
We will be recording the live training sessions.Participants will be required to keep their video on during the Training, so it is vital that participants present on video with professionalism and awareness. The participant is responsible for their voice and appearance during this time, knowing that it will be recorded and potentially shared with others.
This means that it’s possible that a participants voice, video or image may be seen in the video during the training. If participants ask a question during the training, their question and Elizabeth Legg's answer may be incorporated into online training videos to help other clinicians who may have the same or similar questions.
