Abstract: 

Informed Consent is an essential surgical skill that has moral, ethical and practical implications for the older patient. This module uses three video trigger tapes that present the “Typical” surgical informed consent, its potential aftermath, and follows with an example of an “Effective” informed consent. This module is part of the Advanced Education in Geriatrics for Surgeons (AEGIS) project.

Educational objectives: 

Upon completion, learners should be able to

1. Describe the informed consent process including components

2. Discuss unique concerns for the geriatric surgical patient during consent
