Every health-care professional, including optometrists, must obtain informed consent from patients to provide treatment, collect personal health information, and more.
The College is pleased to launch a new eLearning module Eye Consent – The Optometrist’s Guide to Informed Consent.
This online module will cover:
- what qualifies as consent
- when and how to document consent
- how to protect patient information and privacy.
The module, which is being offered for free to Ontario optometrists, provides practical information and examples to facilitate learning. Optometrists can complete the module once per continuing education (CE) cycle and will receive one Category A CE credit hour.
