New Anesthesia Informed Consent Rule

Please Note: Due to technical difficulties, the The Texas Medical Disclosure Panel and forms are not currently available on the Department of State Health Services website. TMA has posted the most recent report, provided by DSHS in the link below. (May 17, 2016)

Effective Jan. 16, physicians must tell patients about the risks and hazards of anesthesia and/or perioperative pain management (analgesia) and obtain their signed consent for these procedures. The Texas Medical Disclosure Panel adopted a new disclosure and consent form for this purpose.
