Patient Consent

Obtaining Informed Consent is a vital part of the consultation for any practitioner undertaking skin surgery, but the words we use can often be misinterpreted between doctor and patient because of differences in expectations or is the use of language. Accordingly there is a great need for a visual resource to document indisputably what exactly an outcome will look like.

"Outcomes of Skin Surgery" by Dr Graham Colver provides a major step in establishing a realistic basis for the outcomes of skin surgery.
