Conversations in Ethics – Ethical Challenges with Informed Consent

Homestead, FL US
September 27, 2019

Informed consent is a process that begins when a patient consents to treatment on admission. Historically, informed consent had been influenced by an interpretation of informed decision making as a legal obligation in which the emphasis is full disclosure, rather than an ethical obligation toward mutual decision making by fostering understanding. Recently, the imperative has emerged to reassess and reevaluate how treatment decisions are made between physicians and patients to help improve patient and family outcomes. The healthcare team, patient, and family are sometimes faced with challenges in this process.

Join us as we discuss what informed consent means, the process, challenges we face, and give some examples of previous cases and the outcomes while maintaining confidentiality.
