  • Greet your patients when they are fully clothed; this shows that you care about consent
  • Ask your patients if it is okay to be touched before you perform a physical exam
  • Check in during the exam; ensure your patient that you are there for them if they have any questions or doubts. Always ask how the patient is doing and if they are feeling any discomfort
  • Stop if your patient says “no” or is uncomfortable; this shows that you are respecting their decision to further (or discontinue) the exam or conversation
  • Consent applies to birth control too; if your patient does not agree to be put on birth control, do not force them into the decision
  • Always get consent before performing an exam under anesthesia; explain why the process will be occurring and how the process will be followed through
