Quick Check: Informed Consent Process

Using our Quick Check tool can help you improve your informed consent process and documentation.

The checklist addresses all aspects of informed consent, including patient shared decision making discussions and education, consent form recommendations, and documentation.

The tool also provides a resource list and contact details for additional guidance.


The guidelines suggested here are not rules, do not constitute legal advice, and do not ensure a successful outcome. The ultimate decision regarding the appropriateness of any treatment must be made by each healthcare provider considering the circumstances of the individual situation and in accordance with the laws of the jurisdiction in which the care is rendered.
