Abstract: Informed consent is the process by which health care professionals are expected to obtain valid consent from patients and research participants. It involves a process of giving information and making sure of an understanding of this information, a voluntary choice, and competence on the part of the patient (or research participant). The reasonable person standard is useful as it can fit in to most situations by defining what a reasonable person in that situation would be. This applies to newer issues such as a broad consent, but more importantly plays a role in cultural divergence and what a reasonable person in each culture would define as a standard.
