Informed consent is a dialogue between you and your patient, discussing:
- The nature of the recommended treatment.
- The risks, complications and benefits of that treatment, including the likelihood of success.
- Alternatives to the recommended treatment — including no treatment — and the risks, complications and benefits of each.
MedPro’s Patient Safety & Risk Solutions team has several sample informed consent forms available and can be found here. Additionally, MedPro Group’s guideline titled Risk Management Strategies for Informed Consent contains valuable information regarding when and how informed consent should be obtained before commencing treatment.
For these and additional risk management resources contact Professional Insurance Programs at 800-637-4676 or firstname.lastname@example.org
