Any therapeutic intervention needs consent from the patient, after have received information from the physician. This is often seen as a bureaucratic accomplishment but it could enhance therapeutic alliance. We propose to divide consent from information, offering a place in which doubts and emotions can be explored, with the assistance of a psychological interview. We believe that this new approach can enhance physician-patient relationship, with an improvement in patient satisfaction and a decrease of claims and complaints.
