AHRQ Training Modules Available For Improving Informed Consent

Two new training modules developed by AHRQ are available to help hospital executives and other health care professionals improve the informed consent process. The modules aim to support better communication with patients, who often do not understand the risks, benefits and alternatives of their treatments even after signing consent forms. The Joint Commission is offering free continuing education credits (continuing education and continuing medical education) for taking AHRQ’s Making Informed Consent an Informed Choice modules. Learn more about the modules and how organizations that do not participate in Joint Commission accreditation may obtain them from AHRQ, and access a guide to implementing the modules.
