Abstract

Informed consent is uniformly accepted as essential to the treatment process. However, the relevant literature has not discussed issues of risk specific to suicidal patients, nor has such information routinely been included in the informed consent process. The implications of including suicide-specific risk information in the informed consent process is discussed and examples provided.
