Informed Consent: No Longer Just What the Doctor Ordered? Revisited

Informed Consent: No Longer Just What the Doctor Ordered? Revisited
Marc D. Ginsberg
Akron Law Review, January 2019; 52(2) pp 49-90
Abstract
The law of informed consent in medicine has evolved from the original doctrine which required the physician’s disclosure of the risks, benefits, and complications of (and alternatives to) a proposed procedure or treatment. The doctrine now implicates the disclosure of matters personal to the physician. Questions regarding the breadth of the doctrine in other respects have developed as well. This paper represents the author’s second examination of the unconventional aspects of the law of informed consent.
