Consent to Treatment: A Practical Guide, Fifth Edition is the single-volume, complete library of patient consent topics and solutions. Written by an experienced health care attorney and risk manager, this leading resource helps you formulate your own effective, voluntary and lawful consent policies and procedures - so that you can successfully limit liability and avoid litigation.

Long regarded as the "go-to" resource by lawyers and health care providers alike, Consent to Treatment has been cited in over 100 law review articles and 20 court decisions, including a landmark ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court regarding end-of-life choice-making.

The Fifth Edition of Consent to Treatment: A Practical Guide continues to promote the idea that consent is an ongoing communications process, not just a simple form. Use this resource to go beyond consent merely as legal defense tool to using consent communication as a patient safety tool.

This revised and updated single-volume library of patient consent topics and solutions includes these brand new chapters:

  • The Art of Consent Communication
  • Consent, Reproductive and Gender Health
  • Consent, Communicable and Infectious Disease, and the Public Health
  • And a new part to the chapter on Workplace Consent Issues focusing on consent for medical screening and occupational medicine

Consent to Treatment helps you:

  • Formulate and enforce effective consent policies and procedures
  • Navigate consent topics - both common and complex
  • Stay in compliance with state and federal laws on consent
  • Provides solid case analysis on important issues in consent to treatment
  • Use consent strategies to promote patient safety
  • Offers practical risk management insights to mitigate potential for consent litigation
  • And more!

Consent to Treatment, Fifth Edition has been updated to include:

  • Discussion of Belgian law on pediatric euthanasia and the American College of Pediatrics’ guidelines for managing end-of-life choice-making for children
  • Discussion of the "two physician" or "two dentist" rule used in some states to address consent issues when incapable persons are in need of treatment
  • Effective use of Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) orders and Do Not Hospitalize (DNH) orders
  • Review of the Organ Procurement Transplant Network (OPTN) policy statement on "Informed Consent of Transmissible Disease Risk"
  • Examination of donation after circulatory death (DCD) in the context of protocol changes made by the OPTN in September 2014
