Physicians' Explanatory Behaviours and Legal Liability in Decided Medical Malpractice Litigation Cases in Japan
BMC medical ethics 2011 April 21; 12: 7
A physician's duty to provide an adequate explanation to the patient is derived from the doctrine of informed consent and the physician's duty of disclosure. However, findings are extremely limited with respect to physicians' specific explanatory behaviours and what might be regarded as a breach of the physicians' duty to explain in an actual medical setting. This study sought to identify physicians' explanatory behaviours that may be related to the physicians' legal liability.
