What is Informed Consent?
Informed consent is a legal and ethical concept that refers to the process by which individuals are provided with comprehensive information about a medical procedure, treatment, or research study, and voluntarily give their explicit agreement to proceed based on their understanding of the risks, benefits, and alternatives involved.
Informed consent is a fundamental principle of medical ethics and is designed to protect the rights and autonomy of patients or research participants. It ensures that individuals have the right to make informed decisions about their own health care, based on their values, preferences, and understanding of the information provided. Informed consent requires clear and effective communication between the health care provider or researcher and the individual, and should be obtained before any medical intervention or research activity takes place.
