Printable Child Travel Consent Form

Printable Child Travel Consent FormEvery person should be able to make informed decisions regarding their health. Treatments for medical conditions can be sensitive, so patients must be able to determine in light of known risks as well as their own personal preferences, how they will be treated. In order to ensure that medical professionals are allowed to provide treatment to patients they must obtain the process of informed consent.

Informed consent constitutes a lawful condition under which a patient is given a complete and accurate description of his or her physical health and the recommended treatment by the physician who is acting as the patient’s physician. After receiving this information the patient must offer the physician consent to treat before any form or treatment can be provided. Without the patient’s informed consent an health care professional cannot provide treatment.

Decision Making Capacity

In some cases, patients do not possess the capacity to comprehend their options regarding treatment, and the benefits and risks associated with each. In other cases patients may not be able to effectively communicate their choices to health care professionals. Under these circumstances the patient is said not to have adequate capacity to make decisions. An individual from the family or court appointed representative could then be able to make informed consent on behalf of the patient.

Patients who are influenced by their emotions – anxiety or fear, as an example could be classified as not having the capacity for decision-making. The ones who are asleep clearly can’t make decisions on alone, and external parties must provide consent for treatment instead.
