FLORES-SANDI, Grettchen. Considerations About Patient’s Consent in Expert Evidence Evaluation. Acta méd. costarric [online]. 2011, vol.53, n.1, pp.26-29. ISSN 0001-6002.

The aim of the expert medical evaluation is to collaborate with judges and court in the evaluation of medical aspects of a person undergoing a judicial process, in order to facilitate reaching a correct justice administration. Regardless of the reported incident, in the context of clinical forensic medicine, the patient’s consent has some ethical, informative and particular aspects to be considered by the medical expert, in order to full fill the legal requirements.

Keywords : patient’s consent; medical expertise; bioethics.
