It is possible that during your career you will face challenges with the consent process. Our experience at Avant shows that it is important to see consent as more than just the signing of a form. The focus of the informed consent process is the discussion you have with the patient. This discussion should include the benefits, alternatives, risks and complications associated with any proposed procedure.

In this video Jo Montgomery, Senior Risk Manager at Avant, will give you some recommendations about your clinical and legal responsibilities.
