Victorian Healthcare Experience Survey data shows renal patients generally feel less involved in decisions about their care.
To improve this, we have developed statewide minimum criteria for informed consent.
These documents aim to improve patient involvement in decisions about their care and reduce variation in the information they receive when consenting to treatment for end stage kidney disease.
To make sure your patients are provided with sufficient information and understand their treatment options, we have developed three consent forms and a policy.
You can adapt them to suit the needs of your health service.
Improved communication, shared decision-making and informed consent.
