Patient Consent Forms
Responding to requests from our members, the American Venous Forum’s Patient Education Committee 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’s Patient Education Committee 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 will be available soon for purchase through ShopAVF in packs of 50.
