Consent

Informed consent must be sought for each stage of the clinical forensic assessment, including the use of any specialist techniques or equipment (e.g., colposcope) and obtaining the relevant forensic samples. When obtaining this consent, the patient and/or parent should be advised that the practitioner is unable to guarantee confidentiality of the material gleaned during the medical examination because a judge or other presiding court officer can rule that the practitioner should breach medical confidentiality. If photo documentation is to form part of the medical examination, the patient should be advised in advance of the means of storage and its potential uses (see Subheading 2.8.); specific written consent should then be sought for this procedure. The patient must be advised that he or she can stop the examination at any time.
