Chapter 2 deals specifically with the topic of informed consent, an essential legal requirement for the general practice of medicine. Some of the cases are specific to mental health treatment, but the most critical to defining the standards of informed consent and related to more purely medical conditions. Cases described here include Natanson v. Kline, Canterbury v. Spence, Kaimowitz v. Michigan Department of Mental Health, Truman v. Thomas, Clites v. Iowa and Zinermon v. Burch.
