AVALOS J, Nicolás  e  TAPIA M, Sandra. Recommendations and theoretical basis of the informed consen. Rev Chil Cir [online]. 2013, vol.65, n.5, pp.448-453. ISSN 0718-4026.

The informed consent is the rational acceptance of a medical intervention or the choice between several alternatives, by a patient. The intervention can be for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes. The concept of autonomous decision goes beyond the fulfillment of a legal regulation about the informed consent. We must not forget the ethical grounds of the relationship between health care providers and recipients, which should be based on mutual trust. The information should be disclosed in an honest, sincere and truthful way and without conflicts of interest, to obtain a fully informed consent to proceed with the proposed interventions.

Palavras-chave : Informed consent; provider; autonomy.
