          Abstract

          Trata-se de um artigo que comenta sobre a real importância do Termo de Consentimento Informado na prática médica. Este documento tem sido cada vez mais usado como uma prática defensiva, a fim de constituir provas para defesa de um eventual processo judicial de responsabilidade médica, desvirtuando assim a idéia original, que seria a de respeitar a autonomia do paciente e delimitar a responsabilidade médica. O documento tem como objetivo mostrar que o médico cumpriu com seu dever de informar. Seu grande valor reside nos casos onde existam riscos de danos irreversíveis ao paciente. Conclui-se, porém, que um prontuário bem elaborado onde se inclui o registro das informações que foram transmitidas, bem como o grau de participação dos pacientes e seus familiares nas decisões terapêuticas, também deve ter valor ético e jurídico semelhante do TCI.

          Translated abstract

          This is an article that talks about the real importance of Informed Consent (IC) in medical practice. This document has been increasingly used as a defensive practice, in order to provide evidence to the defense of any lawsuit of medical responsibility, thus distorting the original idea, which would be to respect patient autonomy and delimit medical liability. The document aims to show that the doctor complied with his duty to inform. Its great value lies in cases where there is a risk of irreversible damage to the patient. We conclude, however, that a well-documented chart, which includes the recording of information that was provided and the degree of participation of patients and their families in treatment decisions, should also have legal and ethical value similar to the IC's.
