Abstract

The teaching of bioethics and its importance in clinical relationships is to a certain extent complicated when we address students of medicine, young people who are more used to dealing with and solving strictly clinical problems. Informed Consent is one of the aspects of professional practice that is generally and widely accepted in Western societies, although difficulties are still encountered in explaining it from a purely theoretical model. This situation led us to design an educational strategy to make the Informed Consent concept more understandable.
