Health professionals are expected to always tell their patients the truth. Nonetheless, if they examined their work every day, there are demands in which the truth is not always a certain matter. This begs the question: Is it the obligation of health professionals to always tell their patients the truth, or are there situations where some dishonesty may be justifiable in order to avoid more serious harm to a patient? When and under what conditions could incomplete disclosure be justified? Informed consent is more than just protecting patients from unwanted bodily interference; it also allows them to make informed decisions about their care. Join us as Dr. Neeraj Nagpal discusses this practical dilemma of consent.
