Consent Form 中文

Consent Form 中文Everybody should be able to make educated decisions about their health. The medical procedures can be injurious, and patients must be able, in the end, to decide the risks that are known to be present as well as their own personal preferences, how they will be treated. So, before medical professionals are permitted to treat patients, they need to receive the so-called informed consent.

Informed consent constitutes a lawful requirement that requires that a patient be given a complete and accurate description of his or her physical condition and the treatment suggested by the treating physician. Once this information is received the patient is required to sign a consent form with the doctor to treat prior to any form of treatment is offered. Without the patient’s informed consent an health care professional is not permitted to offer treatments.

Decision Making Capacity

In certain situations, patients do not possess the capabilities to fully understand their treatment options and the risks/benefits associated with each. In some instances patients might not be able to communicate their choices to health workers. In such situations patients are said to lack the appropriate decision making capacity. Family members or a court-appointed representative will then be permitted to provide informed consent instead.

Patients who are heavily influenced by their emotions – anxiety or fear for instance they could be judged as not able to make decisions. People who are not conscious cannot make decisions on their independently, and other people are required to obtain consent instead.

Items in an Consent Form 中文

Certain elements are included on all informed consent forms:

The patient’s medical condition or diagnosis

The treatment suggested by the medical professional in charge

The risks and benefits that come with this method of treatment

Alternative treatments are also available, as well as their benefits and risks

The dangers and advantages with refusing treatment whatsoever

Not only must these items be documented in a written document, but they must also communicated with the person receiving the treatment. In this way, he or she will fully understand the particulars of the case and receive direct responses to any questions that be arising.
