dc.description.abstract A repeat postal questionnaire of British otolaryngologists has been carried out to assess changes in their practice of obtaining informed consent. The previously reported high level of good practice is maintained. Currently informed consent is more often obtained in outpatients or the preadmission clinic than it was in 1991. Consultants and specialist registrars are more involved in this process. Although there is little evidence given to support a persistent increase in a defensive approach towards gaining informed consent, there is some change in the reporting of surgical complications that may reflect an increased awareness of the concept of 'material risk'. en_US
