Abstract

The qualitative study conducted in 2013 sought to understand the Perception of informed consent among the patient coming to Radiology Department in Indian population using purposeful sampling. A total of 6 patients who are coming to radiology department are selected for the in-depth interviews. The interviews were conducted in a large multi-specialty, private hospital in south India, wherein people from all over India come to access care. It is well known for good quality patient care at relatively low cost. The in-depth interview was audio-taped and coded according to three major themes that emerged during the interview. This study highlighted the poor awareness of informed consent obtained during the radiology procedures. The patient’s poor literacy levels and language interfered with doctor’s ability to help patients to understand the informed consent obtained during the radiology procedures.
