We talk about informed consent, what it means, and if it’s even possible.
Leanna doesn't’ know when women got the vote: she thought it was 1912, but it was 1920. Less than 100 years ago. Bananas!
Informed consent can feel like a rubber stamp: “this is what I have to do to get the treatment I need.”
Doctors have to tell you common and serious risks, but they do not get granular.
If you are interested in detailed information, you have to ask.
Ask ‘What happens if I don’t get treatment?”
Ask “How long do I have to decide?”
Part of informed consent is getting answers to your satisfaction.
Informed consent is a matter of trust in the process/system/doctors.
Look it up yourself: understand as much as you can.
