Obtaining the consent of a patient is at the centre of medical practice and as such
medical practitioners need to ensure proper patient’s approval in the administration of
medical services or prescription of medical products. Informing a patient about the
medical implications involved in the procedure they are about to undergo is not
sufficient as patient needs to be fully engaged. The transcendence beyond informed
consent to shared or dynamic consent is the core focus of discussion in this work. It is
argued in this work, that there has to be policy that deals with specifically with consent
across a broader spectrum of the provision healthcare goods and services.
