Improving the Informed Consent Process in the Hospital Setting
All too frequently, patients do not understand the risks, benefits and alternatives of their treatments even after signing a consent form. To improve the informed consent process, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) engaged The Joint Commission and Abt Associates to provide guidance through free online courses for hospital leadership and other health care professionals.
These online and enduring “start now, finish later” modules that aim to provide guidance to hospital leadership and healthcare providers to improve the Informed Consent process. Both modules include multiple work sheets and downloadable resources. Available FREE to our accredited organizations, both modules offer 2 CE Credits and include multiple work sheets and downloadable resources.
