Mi-tec Medical Publishing publishes 48 Patient Education Pamphlets for the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACS). The objective of each pamphlet is to assist surgeons with their informed consent process, reduce the medico-legal risk of failure to inform and improve patient outcomes. 

The RACS patient education pamphlets can be useful tools for patients considering surgical treatment as the benefits, risks and limitations of surgery are discussed in detail. The possible complications of surgery are listed to assist the informed-consent process. 

The range of RACS patient information include topics such as laparoscopy, wound care, hernia repair, bariatric surgery, heart valve surgery, melanoma surgery, spine surgery, vasectomy, varicose veins, colonoscopy, and more.

The RACS patient information sheets can be educational tools for patients with conditions such as hypertension, coronary artery disease, haemorrhoids, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, hernia, among others.

The patient information is written in plain English to assist the patients’ understanding of health information and to help patients make informed decisions. The pamphlets are 2 or 4 pages and are printed in colour on high-quality A4 sheets.
