ABSTRACT

Objectives: The purpose of the study was to investigate the awareness toward the informed consent in the dental hygienists and the patients before treatment. Methods: A self-reported questionnaire was completed by 200 dental hygienists and 200 dental patients in Changwon after explaining the purpose of the study from June 15 to September 15, 2014. The questionnaire was developed as two types for the dental hygienists and the patients. The questionnaire consisted of general characteristics of the subjects, awareness toward the informed consent before treatment, and experience before the treatment. Results: In the necessity of informed consent, 49.5% of dental hygienists and 72.0% of the patients answered that informed consent is very necessary. In the written informed consent, 33.3% of dental hygienists and 54.9% of the patients answered that the dispute can always happen during treatment. Conclusions: The informed consent is recognized as a defensive means for medical malpractice. For the sake of the dental hygienists and the patients, mutual respect and compromise is the very important factor.
