The dos and don'ts in obtaining informed consent

In response to the common challenge of informed consent, we have created an engaging and informative educational video in which we explore the practical steps to obtain informed consent, including what informed consent is, the three requirements for obtaining valid consent, and the four steps involved.

By delving into these aspects, we aim to enhance your understanding of this important concept.

Informed consent is the cornerstone of ethical practice, promoting respect, autonomy and transparency in every decision-making process.

Our video serves as a valuable resource that can be utilised for sharing knowledge and empowering healthcare professionals to navigate the complexities of the consent process. We encourage you to leverage this video in your efforts to ensure proper patient consent, as it equips you with the tools needed to promote ethical practice and facilitate informed decision-making.
