Abstract

The Authors analyze the perception of the doctor - patient relationship in the local context, by carrying out an exploratory survey among health professionals and patients / users in a local hospital. The results showed that the problems of the informed consent management are strongly felt in the interviewees confirming, with particular reference to patients, that the paternalistic model of doctor-patient relationship is to be considered permanently abandoned in favor of the contractual report. However, the results show that health professionals have not yet fully completed the process of managing information and procedures for acquisition of consent, with possible negative effects as much on clinical risk management as on medico-legal litigation management. And 'well it is known that in our Country informed consent is considered, by predominant law, structural element of health contracts, with an increasing specification of disclosure requirements levied on practitioner which led to regard as independent the civil liability for breach of disclosure requirements compared to the evaluation of performed medical treatment. The authors, to curb the negative consequences of the phenomenon, highlight the importance of training and professional development activities involving all staff working in different health facilities.
