Provide a consistent, thorough informed consent process with the aid of the Academy's new downloadable Retina Informed Consent Video Collection, recommended by the Ophthalmic Mutual Insurance Company (OMIC). This collection includes 21 short videos in English and Spanish, each about five minutes long, on common retinal conditions, the risks and benefits of procedures and treatment options.
Showing these videos will enhance your patient's understanding of procedures and potential complications, help encourage consent, improve compliance and set realistic expectations, in order to help mitigate your malpractice risk.
With versions in both English and Spanish, videos feature an ophthalmologist (played by an actor), high-quality animations and easy-to-understand explanations. All are available in a variety of file formats for desktops, laptops, smartphones and tablets: QuickTime SD and HD and Windows Media. They are also iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch compatible.
