The process of comprehending the positives and negatives of various treatments and options is referred to as "informed consent." What this means, is that physicians must give patients the facts about specific treatments, medications, or tests in order for patients to decide whether or not they choose to go forward with a medical procedure. In essence, a physician will give you these facts so that one can make an informed choice about their health. In all states throughout the country, a patient must give their voluntary, informed agreement for all procedures and treatments involving a medical condition.
