    Hola Navarroi... y bienvenido(a) al foro.

    hoja de consentimiento informado = informed consent form

    Hospital patients signed the informed consent form which authorized doctors/physicians to use data from their analyses.

    I agree with the concept but it certainly sounds funny. I would simply say "consent form" - informed consent is certainly correct (uninformed consent would not be legally binding) - all I am saying is that it sounds funny.

    Agree. Consent form is the most accurate translation.

    I'm sorry Germanpenn, but informed consent is not the same as "plain" consent.
    Furthermore... Wiley's English><Spanish Legal Dictionary confirms my initial translation:
    consentimiento informado = informed consent.

    Laura is right. This is an everyday routine in hospitals. Millions of these forms are signed every day and have the same names in all English speaking countries . Look for informed consent forms from different countries in Google.

    "I agree", Germanpenn.
    In English, we need an article... ;)

    It is "informed consent":

    Informed consent

    The process in which a person learns key facts about a clinical trial and voluntarily agrees to take part in it by signing a consent form describing the potential risks and benefits of treatment.


    Cheers! :)
