Informed Consent - Neurosurgery

Please note: The Medical Board of Australia has published Guidelines: Sexual boundaries in the doctor-patient relationship. These guidelines, which came into effect on 12 December 2018, provide guidance on establishing and maintaining sexual boundaries in the doctor-patient relationship. To support hospitals/individual health practitioners/patients to comply with these guidelines, our Informed Consent forms and Patient Information sheets for procedures requiring intimate examinations, have been updated in the relevant surgical areas, indicated below by an (*).

Two separate additional student consent forms (adult and child/young person), indicated below by an (**), are to be used for patients to complete if the procedure is yet to occur and prior consent has been undertaken on the previous version of informed consent forms, or if the procedure consent form does not have a student section included.
