Guidance on obtaining consent and template forms

BSHAA has produced new guidance for members on obtaining consent.

The guidance is not and cannot be exhaustive, so you should use your judgement to apply the principles it sets out to the situations you face in your practice.

It applies to general dispensing and where micro-suction or irrigation procedures are carried out. For a relationship between the HAD and client to be effective, it should be a partnership based on openness, trust and good communication.

At the end of the guidance are template consent forms. You should, however, take your own legal advice and make sure that your form is suitable for your business and experiences.

This new guide should be read in conjunction with BSHAA’s Professional Practice Guidance and the BSHAA Guidance on Record Keeping.
