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?
