La quête du consentement éclairé en médecine comme construction sociale [The application of informed consent in medicine as social construction].
Revue Médicale Suisse
Publication types: English Abstract ; Journal Article
The aim of this article is to propose an anthropological point of view about informed consent in medicine. This quest for legitimacy should be read as a relational and social construction. In the heart of clinical complexity we find on one side various techniques employed by the medical community to validate research and to obtain the consent of patients. On the other side patients offer plural and subjective answers due to the doctor patient hierarchical and long relationship. Between constraints and freedoms, informed consent brings to light social relation.
