Doyle et al. state “the importance of securing patient engagement as an element of valid consent to treatment”₁. Flynotes both promotes and encourages patient engagement on bespoke consents with the option of allowing patients to ask questions regarding their treatment. There has been talks regarding the “positive engagement” with patients, and the “long-term positive clinical outcomes”₁ it can have on their overall dental care and treatment.
Once a consent is completed by the clinician, patients are able to review it at home, going through their bespoke treatment consent and raising any questions they might have. Flynotes makes this very accessible for both the patient and your practice team.
The patient’s view
This is what a patient sees within their treatment consent. The question box appears at the bottom of each section, this allows for the patient to ask specific questions relating to that specific section of the consent i.e. questions around the identified risk(s) of the treatment.
