Without a proper informed consent process and a well-written informed consent document, clinicians are vulnerable, no matter what they do in their clinical practices.” She continued, “By closely following the informed consent rules developed by our state legislators and the standards and guidelines set by our professionals associations, clinicians can safely manage their risk both responsibility and sensibly.”
