policy 0293 : Disclosure of Outcomes

Patients are informed about the outcomes of their care, including adverse unanticipated outcomes, so that they can make knowledgeable and informed decisions about their current and future care. A known complication or side effect is not an adverse unanticipated outcome, but information about such outcomes should also be provided to the patient. Some outcomes may be attributable to inherent risks associated with the treatment, a confluence of rare and unavoidable circumstances and/or the patient's condition, human error, or issues associated with clinical processes and treatment.
