The concept of autonomy and decisional auto-determination of the person needing and requesting medical and /or surgical treatments tends to be reflected in the principle of informed consent, which is intended to ensure the legality of health aid. Over the past few years, this legal formula has expanded significantly in both space and importance in doctrinal approaches, legal interpretations and doctrinal elaboration influencing the daily activities of the medical profession. The topic of informed consent is still being researched, not only in terms of the theoretical profile, which has previously been established but also in terms of the murky practical and consequential component.
