Ideally, all patients with movement disorders would sign a consent for videotaping, even if the taping is for clinical care only. It is necessary to explain the rationale for the video recording to the patient, and to obtain a written consent form from the patient or their legal representative. It is important to collect identifying information to link to the video record, for accurate storage and retrieval purposes. Guidelines detailed earlier pertaining to HIPAA should be followed in using videotapes for research use. However, additional regulations and consents need to be addressed when videotapes are specifically used for research, education or publication.
