Rights and Permissions

Several situations of great ethical implications are encountered by physicians in daily urological practice. Informed consent for interventions, selection of patients for operative demonstrations and educational workshops, enrollment of patients in clinical trials, and the use of technology are some issues that call for stringent application of ethical principles in decision making.

Some of the issues encountered, principles applicable, and covenants and documents that guide decision making are discussed.
