According to MKDKI 80% of the 135 cases reported were caused by poor communication between doctors and patients. This study aims to analyze informed consent in therapeutic transactions as a fulfillment of rights and obligations for doctors and patients. The research was conducted in a normative juridical method, emphasizing the norms in legislation, theories, and doctrines related to health law, especially the study of informed consent. The data obtained is analyzed by the logic of deduction, taking into account the legal concept in the system of legislation.
