Description:
Allegations are increasing, that doctors fail when obtaining consent, to ensure that the patient understands the information. Obtaining consent is central to the patient doctor relationship. In the USA, doctors write the acronym â PARQâ in medical notes to demonstrate they have discussed â procedureâ (what it entails), â alternativesâ (including nothing), â risksâ (of the procedure and the alternatives) and â questionsâ (invite questions from the patient) 1 . Birch v University College Hospital (UK) 2 case, exemplifies the importance of above. The doctor was found negligent, because although he informed the patient of the risks of catheter angiography which led to her stroke, he did not discuss the comparative risk of magnetic resonance imaging.
