Preparation of a consent form is a mandatory measure to perform therapeutic measures. Today, due to the complexity of the medical treatment processes, informing the patient about the therapeutic success probability, probable risks, and side effects, has been an indispensable part of treatment.
Such information can be regarded as the main barrier to obtaining patient informed consent. Informed consent is one of the most important concepts in medical ethics and patient rights worldwide, the achievement of which prior to any medical intervention would lead to positive clinical and moral outcomes. Informed consent in health care centers is a process through which a patient or his/her legally authorized representative expresses consent about the treatment plan.
Satisfaction and awareness are two important elements of informed consent. Informed consent and involvement of patient in their medical decision-making process speed up the recovery process. Ethical principles are of fundamental importance in the process of seeking patient consent. Physicians are required to provide patients with information about the disease and treatment. The doctor who treats the patients without their consent would be subjected to legal prosecution.
