What is informed consent?

Before treating you, doctors must obtain consent to the treatment. The consent is valid only if the doctors have given you enough information to allow you to make a reasoned decision under all of the circumstances of your condition. This generally to requires a doctor to advise you of the risks of treatment, the potential complications of treatment, alternatives to the proposed treatment, etc.
