The Schloendorff Century: The Evolution of Informed Consent
The legal decision in the Schloendorff case became the basis for the medical approach to informed consent for the last 100 years. The actual decision is not always well understood. It has been modified, however it still shapes the informed consent conversation medical practitioners have with their patients.
This conference will enhance knowledge of the actual decision and create opportunities to discuss future directions in informed consent.
