Enhancing shared decision making in assisted reproductive technologies through the use of multimedia platforms for informed consent
Informed consent embodies the ethical principle of autonomy. The key goal of informed consent is to ensure that patients are making a medical decision in keeping with their goals and values, based on an understanding of the risks, benefits, and alternatives of a recommended treatment. This laudable goal has unfortunately become lost in a formulaic process involving lengthy paperwork that is laden with complex explanations with little room for discourse and dialogue. Informed consent has morphed into “consenting” or signing a piece of paper to avoid liability rather than an ongoing discussion and engagement between clinician and patient.
