Patient Education Check-Up Project

The Academy and OMIC are jointly sponsoring the fourth annual Patient Education Check-Up Project. This campaign encourages MDs and office administrators to audit all of their Academy patient education materials and informed consent documents to ensure they are current. While the connection between patient education and patient compliance is widely known, the connection between accurate, timely patient education and informed consent materials in reducing malpractice risk may not be. The primary message of this campaign is risk mitigation through up-to-date patient education materials and informed consent documents.

Download the checklist to help you review your existing patient education materials.

Visit OMIC’s library of informed consent forms to make sure you have the most current version.

For more information on the Academy’s patient education products e-mail patientinfo@aao.org.
