A few questions about consent…

ARCHIVED POST N.B. This post is based on the 2012 Osteopathic Practice Standards and therefore may not reflect current legislation or current Mint procedures.

Here are a few of the questions from the Consent procedures audit in the Mint folder:

Would you be able to explain for each patient their goals, beliefs relating to treatment and values for getting better?

Would every patient visiting your practice leave with a clear understanding of their condition?

Do each of your patients receive personalised information on their condition, treatment options and benefits and risks?

Do you agree a treatment plan with your patients?

How do you receive consent? – Written, oral or consensual?

We have posted a short series on clinical consent, how does your practice measure up?  Receiving consent is a common area for complaints.  Is it time for you to review your procedures?
