The process by which a patient learns about and understands the purpose, benefits, and potential risks of a medical or surgical intervention, including clinical trials, and then agrees to receive the treatment or participate in the trial. The main purpose of the informed consent process is to protect the patient.  It implies that your health care provider has given you information about your condition and treatment options and that you have used this information to choose the option that you feel is right. It is a legal document that ensures an ongoing communication process between you and your health care provider. As a translator, it is extremely important that the communication process is accurate and reliable. Many informed consents include dosing information that is vital for the patient. The translator needs to know what terms and measurements used in English speaking countries are different in Spanish speaking countries and adapt the consent accordingly. Informed consents are used every day in every health care setting; they are very important both for the patient and the hospital or doctor's office. Madridiam has been translating informed consents almost every day for the last ten years.
