Healthcare Risk Management;Mar2007, Vol. 29 Issue 3, p31

The system is based on a similar one used for adult patients. • The system is intended to supplement a one-on-one conversation, not replace it. • Users can go back and review information as needed. • Risk managers could see a benefit from less litigation tied to informed consent claims.
