Q: What should I fill in the 'Subject of article or photograph' section of the patient consent form of my case report?

Detailed Question -

I am planning on submitting a case report. The submission guidelines have a patient consent form attached. I downloaded the form, but I am having trouble with one of the sections. Where it says 'Subject of article or photograph,' what should I fill? Is it referring to the name of the patient?

1 Answer to this question

Yes, the subject of the article would be the patient. However, it's not clear why a photograph would be needed. If it helps, you could share the download link of the form. We could have our submission experts have a look at the link/form and then provide a more accurate response. Until then, if it helps, you may go through this similar query on the forum by another researcher: Do we have to use journal-specific informed consent forms for case reports?
