"There Is No Evidence to Suggest...": Changing the Way We Judge Information for Disclosure in the Informed Consent Process

Hypatia 12 (2):165 - 184 (1997)
Feminist health activists and medical researchers frequently disagree on the adequacy of the informed consent processes in clinical trials. I argue for an informed consent process that reflects the central importance of patient-participant autonomy. Such a standard may raise concerns for medical researchers about their capacity to control the quantity and quality of the information they disclose to potential participants. These difficulties might be addressed by presenting potential participants with differently sized disclosure packages
