Patient consent

All authors are required to follow the ICMJE requirements on privacy and informed consent from patients and study participants. Please confirm that any patient, service user, or participant (or that person’s parent or legal guardian) in any research, experiment, case study, or clinical trial described in your paper has given written consent to the inclusion of material pertaining to themselves, that they acknowledge that they cannot be identified via the paper; and that you have fully anonymized them. Where someone is deceased, please ensure you have written consent from the family or estate.

Authors may use this Consent to Publish Form, which should be completed, saved, and sent to the journal if requested.

Please see our guide to research ethics, which includes details about obtaining consent from individuals to participate in a study and consent to publish identifiable information.
