Principles of Patient Consent

It is a truism that patients must consent to treatment. However, consent is a complicated process, and this module will take you through it with a question and answer approach. You may want to run through the module twice, and see how well you remember the answers from the first time..

As in the picture above, there are many types of consent. Let's see if you already have a rough idea of what they mean…

Express or Implied?

What is meant by Express consent?

What is meant by Implied consent

All “consents” are either express or implied. For dental procedures, it is always best to get express consent in writing – there is no permanent record of verbally expressed consent, and certainly no record of implied consent.

How might a patient give Implied Consent?
