  • Description
  • Details

Written for surgical trainees, but useful for all healthcare professionals who gain medical and surgical consent, the Handbook of Surgical Consent is a valuable tool, written by experts, offering practical guidance in the principles of consent, alongside procedure-specific information on the risks and benefits.

The handbook is written in a unique format mirroring the structure of the UK Department of Health consent form, which allows for easy reference when consenting a patient directly. Comprehensively covering all surgical specialties, the Handbook of Surgical Consent includes chapters on obstetrics, gynaecology, ENT, and ophthalmology, and covers subspecialties now normally covered in surgical rotations. The handbook is concise and easy to understand, and is fully illustrated to give useful detail on anatomy, techniques or complications that can be shown to patients at the bedside to enhance knowledge and understanding during the consent process.
