Patient education pamphlets have been developed in a range of surgical specialties to:

  • assist communication with patients
  • provide a tool for achieving informed consent

The pamphlets are developed, published and distributed by specialist publishers in this field whose pamphlets are selected by the College to carry the RACS brandmark. The publishers (Mi-tec and EIDO Healthcare Australia) employ expert Fellows to ensure the pamphlets are of the highest quality.

Patient education pamphlets for surgical procedures are available from Mi-tec Medical Publishing and EIDO Healthcare Australia.
