Informed Consent

American Cancer Society; Informed consent is a process of communication between you and your health care provider that often leads to agreement or permission for care, treatment, or services. Every patient has the right to get information and ask questions before procedures and treatments. If adult patients are mentally able to make their own decisions, medical care cannot begin unless they give informed consent. 

Signing informed consent means

  • You have received all the information about your treatment options from your health care provider.
  • You understand the information and you have had a chance to ask questions.
  • You use this information to decide if you want to receive the recommended treatment option(s) that have been explained to you. Sometimes, you may choose to receive only part of the recommended care. Talk to your health care provider about your options.
  • If you agree to receive all or some of the treatment options, you give your consent (agree) by signing a consent form. The completed and signed form is a legal document that lets your doctor go ahead with the treatment plan.

All laws are based on the “Jurisdiction” of government; City, County, State, Federal.

Federal Court Decisions have found “mandates” fall within “State’s Police Powers” of regulating non-economic activity; So the short answer is, “in your state’s legislatively passed statutes…” which we are in the process of compiling and publishing here.

Some states such as Virginia, have Informed Consent coded under Human Research, whereas New York has their Informed Consent laws coded under “Protection of Human Subjects” which is part of their “Public Health” Chapter 45 (art. 24-A § 2442) laws.

As an Example Va. Code § 32.1-162.16:

“Informed consent” means the knowing and voluntary agreement, without undue inducement or any element of force, fraud, deceit, duress, or other form of constraint or coercion, of a person who is capable of exercising free power of choice. For the purposes of human research, the basic elements of information necessary to such consent shall include:

  1. A reasonable and comprehensible explanation to the person
    of the proposed procedures or protocols to be followed, their
    purposes, including descriptions of any attendant discomforts,
    and risks and benefits reasonably to be expected;
  2. A disclosure of any appropriate alternative procedures or
    therapies that might be advantageous for the person;
  3. An instruction that the person may withdraw his consent and
    discontinue participation in the human research at any time
    without prejudice to him;
  4. An explanation of any costs or compensation which may
    accrue to the person and, if applicable, the availability of third
    party reimbursement for the proposed procedures or protocols;
  5. An offer to answer and answers to any inquiries by the
    person concerning the procedures and protocols.

EACH of these points are aspects that must be fulfilled in order to provide “informed consent”.
