For nearly 20 years, EIDO Healthcare has been providing resources and support to help health professionals reduce the risk of litigation. Over that time they have developed several products and have others in the pipeline. Their products are designed to support health professionals in both obtaining and recording informed consent from patients.

EIDO products are currently used in over 700 hospitals across four continents, helping customers around the world achieve excellence in the vital areas of informed consent and clinical governance.

EIDO collaborates with expert authors and leading organisations to ensure that its documents meet the highest standards of information provision. EIDO’s library is endorsed by some of the most prestigious surgical colleges, such as the Royal College of Surgeons of England, Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, the Association of Surgeons of Great Britain and Ireland and the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons. In addition, a ‘crystal mark’ from the Plain English Campaign guarantees clarity and readability for patients.

CAGS and EIDO Healthcare Canada are excited to announce a collaboration to bring EIDO’s Informed Consent documents to Canada. 

A library of 124 procedure-specific patient information pamphlets has been created for Canadian general surgeons.

Important note about informed consent

These documents should be used as a supplement to enhance a patient’s understanding of their procedure, but are in no way intended to be used as a replacement for the important conversations between patient and surgeon. 

Please see the CMPA’s Medical Legal Handbook or Consent: A Guide for Physicians for further guidance on helping patients make informed decisions.
