This article highlights a study completed to prove the viability of children’s cancer patient informed consent groups in place of the consent form. The consent group included hospital professionals and a two-way dialogue. This study proved a higher feeling of emotional stability and calm for parents/guardians when they participated in the informed group consent, where they were able to openly ask questions about their child’s upcoming potential treatment. The aim of this group was to remove some of the internet searching and the results that come with it, which often occurs when a parent receives a shocking diagnosis about their child.
