  • updated 1 yr ago

Informed consent is the process for ethically obtaining a patient’s approval to perform healthcare services or disclose health information about them. To give informed consent, an individual must have a clear understanding of the consequences of a medical procedure or the implications of sharing medical information. Informed consent is required for any medical research to ensure that participants know what treatment they will receive or how their medical information will be used.
