Creating conducive conditions for informed consent
Modern medical practice is by its very nature an interventionist one and in principle, all medical interventions need the informed consent of the patient to be ethically correct. The roots for informed consent lie in the principle of autonomy of the patient – which really means respect for the patient, his intellect, individuality and values. Medical practice without meaningful informed consent indicates disrespect for patients and defeats the very ethos of medical practice.
