Abstract: 

This product includes an OSCE standardized patient case around the topic of informed consent for colonoscopy in an elderly patient with functional and cognitive limitations.

Educational objectives: 
  • Practice the informed consent process for a procedure in a geriatric patient in a professional manner
  • Discuss risks and benefits of colonoscopy in a geriatric patient with comorbidities and functional limitations
  • Address patients’ beliefs and life expectancy in the context of obtaining consent for colonoscopy
