Through an ongoing effort to educate our non-acute membership on topics important to them, PHV developed an advisory committee comprised of administrators across the region. These practice administrators worked in conjunction with PHV to select topics of interest to addressing common challenges or new regulatory demands. Each quarter we will provide an opportunity for any member of PHV to join a Webinar lead by a subject matter expert to discuss a topic of interest.
If you would like to RSVP for the current Webinar or if you have a topic you would like to hear more about in the future, please contact Kevin Sypal at or at 402-802-8397.

Webinar Description:
Informed Consent: More than a Signature
Description: True informed consent is much more than a signature on a form. It is a process of communication, shared decision-making, mutual expectation-setting and respect for the autonomy of your patient. Without it, patients are at risk for health consequences they don’t understand, and providers are at risk for liability exposure. This program discusses the four components of informed consent, provides strategies to engage patients in decision-making, outlines how to document the process and discusses how to manage informed refusal.
This session will provide you with the knowledge to:

  1. State the legal and the ethical obligations of obtaining informed consent from patients.
  2. Identify strategies and best practices for obtaining informed consent and documenting the discussion, including informed refusal.
  3. Examine actual malpractice cases where informed consent was not obtained.
