Unpacking Bedside Bioethics: Informed Consent: Beyond "Consenting" the Patient


University of Minnesota




Tag(s): Past

Informed consent is a critical piece of respecting a patient’s autonomy. Only if a patient or surrogate understands the risks, benefits, and alternatives to proposed health care can they adequately evaluate whether that health care is consistent with their preferences, goals, and values. While informed consent might seem straightforward, there are many myths and misconceptions. In this session we will examine the complexities surrounding informed consent and explore common yet misunderstood consent scenarios in adult and pediatric medicine.

Objectives: By completion of this activity, learners will be able to:
– Explain what the doctrine of informed consent requires from clinicians.
– Identify when clinicians must obtain consent and when there are exceptions.
– Distinguish adequate and inadequate disclosure of risks, benefits, and alternatives.
