INFORMED CONSENT REVISITED:
INTEGRATING ETHICS CODES, VIRGINIA LAW, & HIPAA
Mary Alice Fisher, Ph.D.
We obtain “informed consent” only if an informed person gives consent for something.
Professional Ethics Codes and laws impose informed-consent obligations to ensure that we
avoid providing services or disclosing confidential information based on “uninformed consent.”
Ethically, this protects the client’s right to give us “informed refusal.”
