Informed Consent Model
Spoken Balance operates under the presumption you are a self-determined person with insight and awareness about how to use your bodily autonomy. The Informed Consent model is described by the American Medical Association Journal of Ethics as:
“Informed consent is a concept that is familiar to clinicians. On a practical, day-to-day basis, informed consent is often implied rather than explicitly ensured, and whether explicit or implied, informed consent is the ethical and legal basis for most patient care decisions. It requires that clinicians […] effectively communicate anticipated benefits and potential risks of a treatment, as well as the reasonable alternatives to that treatment. It relies on the patient’s capacity for understanding and weighing these options. Integral to the practice of informed consent is the principle of respect for patient autonomy—that is, respect for a person’s right of self-determination—and the belief that clinicians will work to facilitate patients’ decisions about the course of their own lives and care” (AMA J Ethics. 2016;18(11):1147-1155. doi: 10.1001/journalofethics.2016.18.11.sect1-1611).
