Schultz, Elizabeth A.
CRNA: The Clinical Forum for Nurse Anesthetists. 1998 Feb; 9(1): 2-9.
The patient, as a health care consumer, has a fundamental right to determine what shall be done to his or her own body. The doctrine of informed consent has evolved to protect that right. This article represents a review of the literature regarding the informed consent process in medicine, with an emphasis on consent for anesthesia. A brief history of informed consent is provided, as well as discussion of the controversies surrounding the topic. Several court cases are cited, and the opinions of various authors reflect the wide range of legal and ethical implications associated with informed consent.
