Informed Consent and Decision Making: The Code of Medical Ethics
This e-learning module incorporates animation, infographics, and scenario-based learning to help physicians identify the standard process of informed consent, how to handle situations when patients cannot give informed consent, and issues related to informed consent in special situations. The right of a patient to participate in decisions about their medical care and give consent to treatment are central to both professional ethics and law, and the AMA Code of Medical Ethics provides important guidance in this area. Practicing physicians will find this module, which is divided into four distinct micro-modules, provides essential guidance in a straightforward, understandable manner. Progress can be saved while taking this course, which lends itself to self-paced learning. Should you have technical questions, please contact the AMA Unified Service Center at 1-800-621-8335.
