Questions To Ask Your Doctor Before You Have Surgery, Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ):"Are you facing surgery? You are not alone. Millions of Americans have surgery each year. Most operations are not emergencies. This means you have time to ask your surgeon questions about the operation and time to decide whether to have it, and if so, when and where. The information presented here does not apply to emergency surgery."

Amalgam Fillings: Do Dental Patients Have a Right to Informed Consent? Franklin Pierce Law Center:"An individual may seek the services of a dentist for any number of reasons. After examination, the dentist may determine that the patient has a cavity and inform the patient that the cavity must be filled. Dentists usually do not consult patients to determine what materials to use. Most feel that dialogue with the patient on this issue is unnecessary. However, some materials may be hazardous under certain conditions. New research suggests that mercury amalgam (or "silver") fillings (hereinafter amalgam) may fall into that category."

Informed Consent, National Organization of Circumcision Information Resource Centers (NOCIRC):"Informed consent is a legal doctrine that has been developed by the courts over a number of years. The doctrine of informed consent may have been derived from the Nuremberg Code, which required that doctors obtain the voluntary informed consent of the subject prior to conducting medical experimentation. The Informed Consent Doctrine requires that medical doctors provide a patient with all relevant information about a proposed procedure or treatment prior to obtaining the consent of the patient to carry out the procedure or treatment. Four items of information that must be provided are: the nature of the procedure the risks the benefits the alternatives."

Informed Consent in the Operating Room, ETHICS IN MEDICINE University of Washington School of Medicine:"What are some common situations in which a patient's ability to make decisions about surgery and anesthesia may be questioned? How does medication affect a patient's ability to give valid consent to a procedure? How does the physical or mental stress of the OR affect the informed consent process?"

Clinical Nursing, Malpractice Cases:

Organ Donation Informed Consent, Is A Single Parent's Sufficient?:"Organ donors are in high demand. Frequently intended recipients can wait a lifetime for the critical matching organ. In this case, two nurses obtained a consent from a child's mother. When the father later expressed his disagreement, the child's corneas had been harvested and it was too late."
