Course Description

This 3 part video course gives a comprehensive review of Informed Consent and the application in a modern dental practice. The viewer is taught ways to ensure proper disclosure of treatment options to the patient , and how to properly document this two way communication process. This course outlines the basic legal doctrines of Informed Consent which supports the current trend toward more disclosure. The emphasis of the course is on the process not the “form” and that the process is a two way conversation with the patient at their level of understanding. Dr. Barbell also covers the topics of “negligence and consent” and also “informed refusal”. And some procedures do not require informed consent while others must be documented in writing, and signed by the provider and the patient. All aspects of Informed Consent are reviewed in an easy to understand format meant to give you tools to use in your practice. This course is suitable for all members of the professional dental team, and for training new staff.
