Qr-consent-form-pcrEveryone should have the ability to make informed decisions regarding their medical care. Medical treatments can be risky, therefore patients should be able, in the end, to decide in light of known risks and the way their bodies will be treated. In order to ensure that medical professionals can operate on patients, they must obtain what is known as informed consent.

A patient’s informed consent can be a legally binding requirement under which a patient has been provided with a full and complete description of his or her physical state and the recommended treatment by the doctor in charge. After receiving this information the patient has to provide the physician with consent to treat before any form of care is provided. Without informed consent from the patient any health professional cannot offer treatments.

Decision Making Capacity

In some instances, patients do not possess the capabilities to fully understand their options regarding treatment, and the risks/benefits of each one. In other situations patients may not be able communicate their decisions to the health professionals. Under these circumstances the patient is considered to lack the necessary decision making capacity. A family member or court-appointed representative could then be able to make informed consent on behalf of the patient.

Patients who are greatly influenced by their emotions, like anxiety or fear, as an example could be classified as lacking the ability to make decisions. Those who are unconscious clearly cannot make decisions on own. Therefore, outside parties are required to obtain consent instead.
