You'll get: One-page printer-friendly handout, Professional Guidelines: Informed Consent & Pregnancy
Why you'll love it: Both the American Medical Association (AMA) and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) are clear that informed consent is fundamental to ethical medical care. ACOG has strong and unequivocal language for obstetric practitioners about the right of pregnant patients to make their own decisions without coercion or force. This one-pager includes five important quotes from various professional statements by these organizations that translate directly to patient care, that everyone working in birth should know by heart!
What you can do with it: Post it on your wall to remind you of your clients' rights. Share with clients to educate them about rights and ethics in their care. Put copies in client folders or your reference binder. Print out copies for maternity fairs, doctors' offices, or waiting rooms.
