Medical decision and patient's preference: 'much ethics' and more trust always needed.

Abstract

There is much discussion on medical ethics literature regarding the importance of the patients' right for self-determination. We discuss some of the limitations of patient's autonomy with the aim to draw attention to the ethical complexity of medical decision making in the everyday clinical practice.

KEYWORDS:

autonomy; informed consent; medical decision making
