Glossary: Consent Process

A process in which patients are given important information such as possible risks and benefits, about a medical procedure or treatment, genetic testing, or a clinical trial. This is to help the patient decide if they want to be treated, tested, or take part in the trial. Patients are also given any new information that might affect their decision to continue. This is also called informed consent.
