Fellow professionals represent the peer group, whose standards and testimony at trial are necessary to establish the scope of that duty. The theory of medical negligence, as applied to informed consent, assumes that there is a professional duty of due care to provide to patients an appropriate disclosure of information before obtaining an authorization for treatment. Lack of informed consent is treated as professional negligence in essentially the same respect as is careless performance of a surgical procedure.
Two areas of the law are relevant to this doctrine. They represent different legal traditions through which requirements to obtain informed consent can be defined. The first and most important for the current legal doctrine of informed consent is tort law. A "tort" is a civil injury to one's person or property that is intentionally or negligently inflicted by another and that is measured in terms of, and compensated by, money damages. Civil injuries can be contrasted with criminal injuries, which are punishable by imprisonment or by fines not intended as compensation but paid as penalties to the state.
It has also been argued that rules of informed consent can be motivated less by a concern to promote autonomous choice than by a concern to promote justice. Charles Lidz and his associates maintain that some who have argued for rules governing informed consent in psychiatry, including rules promoting increased disclosure in such areas as consent to electroconvulsive treatment (ECT), have been motivated by a concern over the fairness of subjecting patients to a potentially harmful treatment because of administrative convenience.
