Shared decision making is at the heart of the care that we provide to our patients. This means that we will have two-way conversations about the treatment choices we plan to implement. This also helps to ensure we have your consent before proceeding with any treatment.
What is Consent?
Consent to treatment is the principle that you, the patient, gives your permission before you receive any type of examination, treatment or therapy. The principle of consent is important to us in our clinical code and practice ethics. We call this informed consent, meaning that you have been informed of what is going to happen, and any risks associated with any intervention.
How do we get your consent?
The Physiotherapist will seek verbal consent from the patient prior to the commencement of any assessment or treatment techniques.
