  Title The nature of the informed consent doctrine and the chiropractor
Journal J Can Chiropr Assoc. 1984 Jun;28(2):272–274
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article

This paper examines in part, the doctrine of informed consent for chiropractic treatment. The roles of the chiropractor and the patient are discussed as related to verbal consent, written consent, informed consent and implied consent. Is it the responsibility of the rational patient to provide consent or is it the role of the chiropractor to seek it? As well, some of the fundamental rights of the patient are discussed and the applicable sections of the Canadian Chiropractic Association Code of Ethics and standards of practice are reviewed. The concepts of material disclosure and the criteria for valid patient consent are presented.
