The aim of this study was to determine if recall of informed consent is affected by the timing of obtaining informed consent before endoscopic procedures.
Sixty patients scheduled for colonoscopy or esophagogastroduodenoscopy were enrolled in this prospective, randomized study.
Each patient received informed consent 24 to 72 hours or immediately before the procedure, and follow-up occurred one to three days postprocedure.
There was no statistically significant difference in recall of informed consent or the individual elements of informed consent (indication, risks, benefits, alternatives) between the two groups.
Recall of informed consent is similar whether consent is obtained immediately or several days before endoscopic procedures.
