Colonoscopy Consent Care Plan

Key objectives

Provide patients with a digital consent process, enabling informed consent before their procedure. Patient's are given the right information digitally by the team allowing for remote care before they arrive at the hospital.

Outcome measures

Equip patients with the information they need before their procedure, providing them with a digital consent form that can be done remotely before their procedure, empowering patients to have informed consent.

Current Baselines

All consent forms are completed on paper in person prior to the patient's procedure, information is explained and the doctor goes through a paper form with the patient, appointments aren’t being efficient and patients aren't always giving informed consent.


Workflow

    1. Team: Adds consent care plan to the patient's record

    2. Team: Fills in the consent care plan

    3. Team: Sign the consent care plan

    4. PKB: notifies the patient of the saved care plan

    5. Patient: Logs in and sees care plan

    6. Patient: Signs consent care plan

    7. Team: Sees patients consent before the procedure/operation and confirms consent

<h2>Guidance for health professionals</h2>

<p>(to be read in conjunction with consent policy)</p>

<h3>What a consent form is for</h3>

<p>This form documents the patient's agreement to go ahead with the investigation or treatment you have proposed. It is not a legal waiver - if patients, for example, do not receive enough information on which to base their decision, then the consent may not be valid, even though the form has been signed. Patients are also entitled to change their mind after signing the form, if they retain capacity to do so. The form should act as an aide-memoire to health professionals and patients, by providing a check-list of the kind of information patients should be offered, and by enabling the patient to have a written record of the main points discussed. In no way, however, should the written information provided for the patient be regarded as a substitute for face-to face discussions with the patient.</p>

<h3>The law on consent</h3>

<p>See the Department of Health's Reference guide to consent for examination or treatment for a comprehensive summary of the law on consent (also available at <a href="www.doh.gov.uk/consent" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">www.doh.gov.uk/consent</a>).</p>

<h3>Who can give consent </h3>

<p>Everyone aged 16 or more is presumed to be competent to give consent for themselves, unless the opposite is demonstrated. If a child under the age of 16 has "sufficient understanding and intelligence to enable him or her to understand fully what is proposed", then he or she will be competent to give consent for himself or herself. Young people aged 16 and 17, and legally 'competent' younger children, may therefore sign this form for themselves, but may like a parent to counter sign as well. If the child is not able to give consent for himself or herself, some-one with parental responsibility may do so on their behalf and a separate form is available for this purpose. Even where a child is able to give consent for himself or herself, you should always involve those with parental responsibility in the child's care, unless the child specifically asks you not to do so. If a patient is mentally competent to give consent but is physically unable to sign a form, you should complete this form as usual, and ask an independent witness to confirm that the patient has given consent orally or non-verbally.</p>

<h3>When NOT to use this form</h3>

<p>If the patient is 18 or over and is not legally competent to give consent, you should use form 4 (form for adults who are unable to consent to investigation or treatment) instead of this form. A patient will not be legally competent to give consent if:</p>

<ul>

<li style="list-style:inherit; margin-left: 15px;">they are unable to comprehend and retain information material to the decision and/or </li>

<li style="list-style:inherit; margin-left: 15px;">they are unable to weigh and use this information in coming to a decision. </li>

</ul>

<p>You should always take all reasonable steps (for example involving more specialist colleagues) to support a patient in making their own decision, before concluding that they are unable to do so. Relatives cannot be asked to sign this form on behalf of an adult who is not legally competent to consent for himself or herself. </p>

<h3>Information </h3>

<p>Information about what the treatment will involve, its benefits and risks (including side-effects and complications) and the alternatives to the particular procedure proposed, is crucial for patients when making up their minds. The courts have stated that patients should be told about 'significant risks which would affect the judgement of a reasonable patient. 'Significant' has not been legally defined, but the GMC requires doctors to tell patients about 'serious or frequently occurring risks. In addition, if patients make clear they have particular concerns about certain kinds of risk, you should make sure they are informed about these risks, even if they are very small or rare. You should always answer questions honestly. Sometimes, patients may make it clear that they do not want to have any information about the options, but want you to decide on their behalf. In such circumstances, you should do your best to ensure that the patient receives at least very basic information about what is proposed. Where information is refused, you should document this on the reverse of this page of the form or in the patient's notes.</p>
