Patient Information Leaflets

The patient information leaflet (PIL) provides information that should be considered before the decision is made to use an implantable device.

Patient information leaflets assist patients to:

  • understand the medical device being implanted, both prior to and following surgery;
  • have informed consent conversations with their health professional; and
  • report any adverse event associated with their implanted medical device.

Leaflets are downloadable here for patients to review prior to surgery so as to assist patient-doctor discussions.
