On The Go Mobile Physio - Informed Consent

Your condition and treatment options will be discussed so that you are appropriately informed and, together with your physiotherapist, can make decisions relating to your treatment. You are entitled to refuse any form of treatment and withdraw consent at any time for whatever reason. It is encouraged to communicate any concerns with your physiotherapist.

Questions of a personal nature

Your physiotherapist may ask personal questions relating to your injury and how your injury impacts on your ‘activities of daily living’. The more information you provide, the more likely it is that the physiotherapist can provide effective treatment. It is your choice as to what information you choose to provide. If you feel uncomfortable with a particular question, please let the physiotherapist know and they will cease.

Physical contact

During the examination, assessment and treatment it may be necessary for your physiotherapist to make physical contact. Your physiotherapist will ask your permission before making physical contact with you in any way. You may withdraw consent at any time at which point, all physical contact will cease immediately. Please inform your physiotherapist if anything can be done to assist your comfort or if your have any concerns.
