Achieving Valid Informed Consent: Explicit Treatment Consent with Adults

A clear consent process results in a better informed, more empowered patient who takes more responsibility for their decision and is less likely to have a negative reaction towards the doctor if what was warned actually occurs. 

This education activity helps doctors achieve an optimal informed consent process with adult patients. Take the opportunity to improve your skills and knowledge of the steps involved in the informed
consent process; your awareness of the information that needs to be communicated to a patient and documented; and the issues to consider when a patient refuses treatment or withdraws consent.
