Patient Consent Forms
Responding to requests from our members, the American Venous Forum has developed a set of standardized patient consent forms for the following procedures:
- Vein Laser Ablation
- Radiofrequency Ablation
These consent forms are provided to AVF members at no charge and to non-members for a nominal fee thanks to the support of the AVF Foundation and its generous donors.
These are available for download in PDF format from ShopAVF using the following link and may be reproduced or incorporated into your practice’s EHR.
Patient Education Brochures
The American Venous Forum has developed a series of patient education brochures to assist physicians and patients. These could be displayed in waiting rooms, patient exam rooms, or given directly to appropriate patients. Each trifold brochure addresses a particular topic or treatment:
- Varicose Veins
- Non-Thermal Ablation
- Thermal Ablation
Written by leading venous experts, each brochure includes:
- Description of medical condition being treated
- Description of treatment
- Benefits and risks of specific treatments
- Treatment process and setting
These brochures are available for pre-order through ShopAVF in packs of 50.
Clinical Pocket Guides
The American Venous Forum has produced a series of pocket guides based on recently-published clinical practice guidelines. Conveniently sized and spiral bound to fit in a lab coat, each pocket guide is designed to be a quick, easy reference for a specific clinical practice guideline. The first in this ongoing, growing series include:
- Compression Therapy after Invasive Treatment of Superficial Veins of the Lower Extremities
- Appropriate Use Criteria for Chronic Lower Extremity Disease
- Endothermal Heat-Induced Thrombosis (EHIT) Classification and Treatment
These pocket guides are available for pre-order through ShopAVF
