A patient’s informed consent can be a legally binding condition in which patients are provided with a full and complete 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 patients must offer the physician consent to treat prior to any form of treatment can be provided. Without the patient’s informed consent the health professional cannot offer treatments.

Decision Making Capacity

In some instances the patients aren’t equipped with the ability to comprehend the options for treatment and the risks/benefits associated with each one. In some instances, patients may not be able to communicate their decision to health workers. Under these circumstances the patient is considered not to possess the proper capacity for decision-making. The family member, or court-appointed representative then, is allowed to make informed consent on behalf of the patient.

Patients who are influenced by their emotions – anxiety or fear, for example could be classified as not able to make decisions. People who are not conscious cannot make decisions on alone, and external parties must provide consent for treatment instead.
