Informed Consent Form Translation
We provide fast and accurate translation and interpretation solutions for patient informed consent forms to help you cross linguistic barriers around the world.
Accurate translation of informed consent forms is imperative in protecting both the patient’s safety and the legal security for healthcare professionals and businesses in the life sciences. Informed consent forms that are not properly translated can result in a patient making an uninformed decision, which can lead to malpractice lawsuits. Patients that do not understand English well or at all must have accurately translated versions of these forms to ensure their full comprehension of the regulatory requirements. This also helps provide clear communication between the patient and their physician or healthcare professional regarding treatments and potential side effects for patient health and safety understanding.
While accurately translated informed patient consent forms are necessary to obtain before medical procedures, healthcare professionals must also communicate with patients about the benefits and risks of treatment options. These conversations require the expertise of qualified medical linguists to ensure accurate interpretation of any relayed information, as well as any questions or concerns between patients and physicians.
