Consent to Treatment

The Consent to Specific Treatment/Procedure form (09741) has been revised into three separate forms: 

  1. Consent to Treatment Plan or Procedure (09741 2013-08);
  2. Consent to Surgery or Invasive Procedure (18628); and
  3. Emergency Health Care: Documentation of Exception to Consent (18629). 

Also, a new consent form for blood borne virus testing (when not associated with a specific procedural consent) has been developed:

     4.   Consent to Blood Testing for Blood Borne Viruses (18213).
