Informed Consent

患者知情同意

在病例报告中,作者必须取得并提交患者签署的知情同意书,如患者为未成年或无能力同意的成人,则必须取得患者父母、亲属的同意;编辑必须保护个人信息,包括医患身份,不可泄漏任何可能透露患者身份的信息,照片则需隐藏含患者身份特征的信息。

具体请以下面的英文说明为准:

Informed Consent

Identifying information, including names, initials, or hospital numbers, should not be published in written descriptions, photographs, or pedigrees unless the information is essential for scientific purposes and the patient (or parent or guardian) gives written informed consent for publication. Informed consent is required for Case report, original/research articles and visualized surgery. The statement should be included in the footnote.It may be possible to publish without explicit consent if the report is important to public health (or is in some other way important); consent would be unusually burdensome to obtain; and a reasonable individual would be unlikely to object to publication (all three conditions must be met).
