Informed Consent

 Informed consent is a dialogue between you and your patient, discussing:

  • The nature of the recommended treatment.
  • The risks, complications and benefits of that treatment, including the likelihood of success.
  • Alternatives to the recommended treatment — including no treatment — and the risks, complications and benefits of each.

TDIC is pleased to offer sample forms and letters you can use as part of your informed consent discussions with your patients. By using informed consent forms to document key aspects of the doctor-patient relationship, you manage and reduce liability risks for commons situations and procedures.
