The Informed Consent is one of the most debated topics in Medical Ethics in the last five decades. Should or not patients be informed about medical interventions, treatments, and possible risks of medical acts on their bodies? This question was debated and detailed on all sides. The second development on these topics was on what information should be put on the Informed Consent form: should it contain all relevant information for the patient, in order to make an informed decision for his/her state of health or only the main and general information? In the daily medical practice there are many issues with the adequate quantity of information for the patient and if the Informed Consent Form is too long or to complex, the patient does not read all the information. Usually health care professionals are saying that patients are signing Consent Forms, but they do not read them and do not understand them.
