Presented by Yolanda Sims JD, MHA - KAMMCO Loss Prevention & Risk Management Advisor
Informed consent is not merely a piece of paper, it is a process. In today’s medical practice, a patient’s limited understanding or lack of comprehension can impede the informed consent process. Physicians must examine patients on an individualized basis while providing adequate information and educating them about the risks and benefits of any procedure or surgery. Proper counseling and thorough documentation of the informed consent discussion will serve to protect patients and prevent the erosion of the physician-patient relationship. Yolanda will discuss ethical and legal aspects of informed consent, including the core elements of informed consent and offer tips on how to properly document the process.
Target Audience: This webinar will appeal to clinic and hospital administrators, physicians, risk managers, nursing staff, office and support staff, and other interested healthcare professionals.
