Frequently Asked Questions

What does informed consent mean in healthcare?

Informed consent means a patient will be given clear information about what is involved in any proposed treatment and their treatment options. Health care providers need to obtain valid consent from a patient before examining or treating them.

What does consent to treatment mean?

In the context of health care, consent to treatment is a person’s agreement for a health professional to proceed with a specific proposed treatment. That agreement is obtained (or withheld) following communications between one or more health professionals and the patient about the proposed treatment(s) and their inherent risks and benefits.

What do you need to know before signing an informed consent?

If you’re having a medical procedure, you may have to sign an informed clinical consent form. Before you sign, make sure you understand what’s going to happen, what the benefits and potential risks are and ask any questions you have about your procedure. This isn’t the same as informed financial consent (which we’ll get to later).

What is a medical consent form?

When your healthcare provider recommends specific medical care, you can agree to all of it, or only some of it. Before the procedure, you’ll have to complete and sign a consent form. This form is a legal document that shows your participation in the decision and your agreement to have the procedure done.
