Consent: informed consent and more

Australian law and medical practice reflect the fundamental ethical principle of autonomy: recognising that individuals have the right to make informed decisions about their medical treatment. Except in a life-threatening emergency, a patient with capacity needs to give voluntary and informed consent before undergoing any examination, investigation, procedure or treatment.

Patient consent today is generally understood as involving patients and their treating practitioners in a process of shared decision-making about treatment options.
