Description:
The need for consent, and the application of the general principles in this policy, extends to all interventions conducted by or on behalf of the HSE on service users in all locations. Thus, it includes social as well as health care interventions and applies to those receiving care and treatment in hospitals, in the community and in residential care settings. How the principles are applied, such as the amount of information provided and the degree of discussion needed to obtain valid consent, will vary with the particular situation. In some situations, permission, as matter of common courtesy and of respect for the service user, rather than consent may be required e.g. to enter a person’s home, and should be obtained in keeping with relevant HSE codes of conduct1. Knowledge of the importance of obtaining consent is expected of all staff employed or contracted by the HSE.
