    Consent to Treatment: A Practical Guide, Fifth Edition is the single-volume, complete library of patient consent topics and solutions. Written by an experienced health care attorney and risk manager, this leading resource helps you formulate your own effective, voluntary and lawful consent policies and procedures - so that you can successfully limit liability and avoid litigation.

    Long regarded as the "go-to" resource by lawyers and health care providers alike, Consent to Treatment has been cited in over 100 law review articles and 20 court decisions, including a landmark ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court regarding end-of-life choice-making.

    The Fifth Edition of Consent to Treatment: A Practical Guide continues to promote the idea that consent is an ongoing communications process, not just a simple form. Use this resource to go beyond consent merely as legal defense tool to using consent communication as a patient safety tool.

    This revised and updated single-volume library of patient consent topics and solutions includes these brand new chapters:

    • The Art of Consent Communication
    • Consent, Reproductive and Gender Health
    • Consent, Communicable and Infectious Disease, and the Public Health
    • And a new part to the chapter on Workplace Consent Issues focusing on consent for medical screening and occupational medicine
