Abstract

During the last few decades, it has become recognised that patients can legitimately exercise their right to autonomy and self-determination in health care. Among the obvious privileges that the application of this principle accords to the patient in the medical context is taking part in the decision-making process and an obligation on the part of health professional to respect his or her choices with respect to his or her decisions in health care. Hence, among other things, the right to consent to or refuse treatment and the right to die, became natural and rational claims for patients.
