Informed consent for GI endoscopy

Jan 31, 2017, 09:57 AM
Over the last 50 years, informed consent has undergone a transformation from an ethical concept to a legal doctrine. It is based on the ethical principles of self determination and autonomy.2 Courts and juries may find physician liability based on the failure to obtain adequate informed consent.3-5 Historically, physicians have had the primary responsibility to disclose to patients the patient’s diagnosis, the nature of a proposed procedure or treatment, material risks and benefits, and reasonably available alternatives in obtaining consent.6 Properly obtaining informed consent can guard against legal claims for medical battery and negligence.
