Information et consentement concernant les échographies fœtales de dépistage

Abstract : Objective Information and consent are a legal and ethical obligation for healthcare professionals. However, consent specific to ultrasound screening has only been in place since the Decree of January 14 2014. The National Conference on Obstetric and Fetal Ultrasound published a report to support this decree in order to help sonographers to better inform patients. This study’s objective is to carry out an evaluation of professional practices concerning the transmission of information and obtaining consent of the patient during ultrasound screenings. Methods We set up a descriptive quantitative study with a questionnaire which we sent to 303 practitioners practicing in hospitals and liberal environment in three French counties. We got 92 responses. This study was carried out from May 2020 to November 2020. Results and conclusion Our study showed that a large proportion of sonographers did not comply with the laws and recommendations regarding the transmission of information and the collection of consent during screening ultrasounds. The majority of the study population transmits the information orally. With regard to the collection of consent, it is usually done orally and even in some cases, no consent is obtained.
