Informed consent is a process of sharing information that facilitates the individual patient's right to self-determination. Despite its importance in anesthesia practice, the process of informed consent is rarely audited or examined. As such, there are only limited data with respect to anesthesia consent practices, particularly within the pediatric setting. We designed this study, therefore, to examine the information that parents seek regarding their child's anesthesia, what they are told, who told them, and how much of the information they recall.
