A patient’s right to know
A relationship between a doctor and a patient is based on the principle that the patient must have autonomy in making decisions. Such autonomy has been necessitated by two factors that override the obvious expertise of the doctor. First, the decisions to be made concern the health and life of the patient. Second, the patient and the patient alone knows what is right for him given his personal, family, social and economic status.
