It is an increasingly important part of a surgical practice to perform quality assurance projects and these include clinical audits. This
means critically looking at procedures that are performed and discussing any issues that may have arisen so that these could be
prevented in the future. These audits must be peer reviewed in order for them to be deemed suitable by the Royal Australasian
College of Surgeons. As such, some of this information is presented in front of other colleagues and urologists. At no time are patients’
identities mentioned during these discussions but simply a general discussion regarding the type of cases that have been performed
and problems that may have arisen. With the current privacy legislation it is imperative that we have your informed consent to
perform these audits and that you agree that information that may be obtained from these audits is allowed to be presented in front
of third parties such as other urologists.
I agree to the collection, use and disclosure of medical information collected about me by Australian Urology Associates so they may properly assess, diagnose and treat, and be proactive in my health care needs.
