People often use the term ‘informed consent’ in the healthcare industry.
But what does it mean?
Informed consent means that before you undergo a medical treatment or a procedure, you fully understand everything involved in that procedure including risks, benefits, alternative treatments, and potential side effects. In addition, informed consent means that your decision to accept that medical treatment or procedure is completely voluntary.
If you require medical intervention such as a vaccine, your healthcare provider should give you all the information and be able to answer any questions you have.
Informed consent should be obtained before proceeding with medical intervention.
What should my healthcare provider discuss with me?
1. The risks and benefits
Before being given a medicine or undergoing a procedure, your health practitioner should tell you all of the potential risks and benefits. You should also receive information on potential side effects. Information on risks and benefits should be specific to you since every person will be impacted differently depending on their age and health status.
2. A treatment outline
You should receive a treatment outline. A treatment outline will include things like how a medicine is given, how long a procedure is, how long it might take to recover, and how side effects can be managed. Ideally this should be provided to you in a printed form for later reference.
3. Your medical history
Your healthcare provider should be aware of your medical history. It is important to remember that we are all different. A medicine that works for one person won’t always work for another person. In order to know whether a treatment or procedure will be beneficial, it is important for you and your care provider to look at your medical history. You may have medical conditions that interfere with your ability to receive a treatment, and, in rare cases, a treatment could endanger you. It is important to look at your allergy history and whether you have had a negative reaction to similar medication in the past. If you are in any doubt about whether a medication may interfere with your health, you may decline a medicine. In the case of the Covid-19 vaccine, you may want to apply for an official medical exemption form. You can do this here.
4. Alternative procedure or treatment options
To provide the best medical care possible, your healthcare provider should give you alternative treatment options. In the case of the Covid-19 vaccine, it is important to know that there are alternate safe and effective treatment options which can be found here.
5. Voluntary decision
It is important that all health decisions are made voluntarily. This is called voluntary consent. It is against the law to force anyone into accepting a treatment or medical procedure against their will. If a person feels they must receive a medical intervention to avoid losing their job, their place at university, or having their freedom of movement taken away from them, then they have been coerced and the injection becomes a criminal act of assault, and informed consent has been violated.
Why is it important?
Informed consent exists to protect people from coercion, medical experimentation, and procedures that may cause them more harm than benefit. Since you are the one that has to live with the consequences of any medicine or procedure, you should be given the information to make an informed, free choice. This is important to make sure you receive the highest standard of care. Treatments should only be given when the person has made the decision that there is significant benefit from the intervention and minimal risk.
Informed consent can help prepare you for the future so that after treatment (e.g vaccination) you can make key decisions to aid your recovery. Your treatment outline, for example, will let you know what to expect during recovery so you can do things like take more time off work, stock up on medicines that aid recovery, and gather support from friends and family.
To receive the best clinical care, you should always ask your doctor or nurse for their opinion on whether you are fit enough to undergo a procedure or take a treatment. They are obligated by medical ethics to help you make the best decision.
What are medical ethics?
Medical ethics are guidelines that all medical practitioners should adhere to when treating people. They are basic human rights principles, and they are considered best practices in public health matters. In the interest of providing informed consent, health care providers should consider all pillars of medical ethics.
Four pillars of medical ethics:
- Patient autonomy – Healthcare practitioners have to respect that you have the right to decide whether or not you want a medical intervention.
- Beneficence – Beneficence means that it is your healthcare provider’s duty to “Do Good” and only take actions that will benefit you.
- Non-maleficence – Non-maleficence means that your healthcare provider should “Do No Harm” in the interventions they are offering. If there is risk involved, the treatment potential benefits must outweigh the risks.
- Justice – Healthcare professionals must treat all people equally regardless of ethnicity, religion, gender, or social circumstance.
Can everyone give informed consent?
Not everyone can give informed consent. Weighing the risks, benefits, and side effects of a medical intervention requires maturity, decision-making capacity, and the ability to consider short and long-term consequences. It is important to consider a person’s capacity to make these types of complex decisions regarding their health.
Informed consent cannot be provided by the following:
The age of consent for making medical decisions varies around the world, but it is usually in the range of 14 – 18. Some countries will assess maturity in each individual. Parents and guardians of children under the age of consent should provide informed consent on their behalf. This is called parental consent.
- Emergency circumstances
In some circumstances, valid consent is not possible. For example, when an adult is undergoing surgery and there are complications, the healthcare provider may need to perform a medical procedure or give a medical treatment not discussed prior to the surgery. This type of emergency care can be vital to saving lives. If this happens, the shared decision-making responsibility is often split between relatives and the healthcare team.
- People with disabilities
If a person is unable to make a decision to consent for treatment because of intellectual, emotional, mental, or social disabilities, their guardian may be asked to sign a consent form or provide permission on their behalf.
How do I give informed consent for a Covid-19 vaccination?
The informed consent procedure is as follows:
The person giving you the injection must give you all the information you need to make an informed decision including risks, benefits, side effects, and alternative treatments.
This information needs to be communicated to you in a way that you understand.
You must make the decision freely and without being pressured by anyone or bribed with anything (e.g cash, product discounts, free meals).
You will need to sign a consent form to show that you understand the information provided to you. This consent form is a legal document that protects the person giving the treatment should anything go wrong, so you must make sure you’ve received all the information you need to make the right choice for you.
Potential risks and benefits of the Covid-19 injection
When considering whether to take the Covid-19 injection, it is important to understand the following:
- People who receive the injection can still get the virus, spread it, and become ill.
- The Covid-19 injections are still in the clinical trials phase. In normal circumstances, a vaccine takes up to 10-15 years to develop. We don’t know what the long term risks and benefits are.
- At present some establishments, workplaces, and universities may require you to be vaccinated. It is important to remember not to be coerced by these requirements since it is you that will have to live with the consequences of that intervention.
- The Covid-19 injections carry a higher risk of acute allergic reactions (anaphylaxis) compared with normal vaccinations.
- The Covid-19 injections are not designed like normal vaccines. They provide a recipe for your body to make a viral spike protein.
- Vaccine side effects are being reported to various medical databases. These include bleeding, clotting, heart, brain, and immune system disorders. Deaths have also been reported.
Emerging evidence is also showing that in the nucleus of our cells the spike protein impairs our cells’ ability to repair DNA.
Why should I consider detoxing from the spike protein?
The spike protein from a natural infection or a Covid vaccine causes damage to our body’s cells, so it is important to take action to detoxify from it as best as we are able.
The spike protein is a highly toxic part of the virus, and research has linked the vaccine-induced spike protein to toxic effects. Spike protein research is ongoing.
The virus spike protein has been linked to adverse effects, such as: blood clots, brain fog, organising pneumonia, and myocarditis. It is probably responsible for many of the Covid-19 vaccine side effects discussed in the WCH post-injection guide.
A Japanese biodistribution study for the Pfizer vaccine found that, in the 48 hours post-vaccination, vaccine particles had travelled to various tissues throughout the body and did not stay at the injection site, with high concentrations found at the liver, bone marrow, and ovaries.
Emerging evidence on spikopathy suggests that effects related to inflammation and clotting may occur in any tissue in which the spike protein accumulates. In addition, peer-reviewed studies in mice have found that the spike protein is capable of crossing the blood-brain barrier. Thus, in humans it could potentially lead to neurological damage if it is not cleared from the body.
Important Note: This guide is for education only. If you are ill after vaccination, please seek help from a medical doctor or an holistic health practitioner. For information on post Covid-injection illnesses, see the WCH post-injection guide.
Most importantly, before receiving any medication or the jab, possible adverse effects should be explained to the “patient” so that they can make an informed decision as to whether they want to take anything before taking it.
UK Lawyer, ANNA DE BUISSERET SERVES NOTICE OF CRIMINAL LIABILITY ON UK COVID VACCINATORS UNDER NUREMBERG CODE
Anna de Buisseret is a senior UK lawyer and a retired Army Officer with nuclear, biological warfare training. “That’s why I’m standing up and speaking out. I’m upholding my Oath to We the People to ‘Protect and Serve’,” she says. She has previously also worked as a management consultant at Pfizer.
For the past year she’s been working with a team of lawyers, both in the UK and internationally, to drill down into the evidence and the legal analysis of the Covid-19 pandemic. They are also working with various campaign groups including: HART; Covid19Assembly; World Doctors Alliance; UK Freedom Alliance; and, Us for Them.
By Rhoda Wilson
During an interview with Tony Gosling de Buisseret explained what led her to believe Covid-19 was biowarfare. Because of her previous nuclear, biological and chemical weapons training and knowing that bioweapons had been in the making for a long time, she was “on high alert for bioweapons being released”. In March/April 2020 she contacted an ex-army friend in China to discuss “the evidence, what was going on and comparing notes about what he was being told over in Beijing compared to what we were being told over in the UK.” For example, pictures at the start of the ‘pandemic’ of people falling dead in the streets in China – her contacts in China said, “it’s all nonsense”. De Buisseret had also heard Francis Boyle speaking out very early on saying, “this is a bioweapon, this is biowarfare”.
“We took enough witness evidence and looked at enough of the evidence – and as you know, with lawyers it has to become beyond reasonable doubt if you’re going to allege criminal activity – and it got to a point where, unfortunately, we reached the conclusion that it was beyond reasonable doubt,” de Buisseret said. After reviewing the definitions of genocide, crimes against humanity and biowarfare compared with what was going on, it was irrefutable. In April 2021 they made an urgent application to the International Criminal Court requesting an investigation of the UK government.
During the interview she was asked about her “encounter with the police” where, outside a vaccination centre, police officers prohibited her serving notices of liability to the those injecting the public, “the vaccinators”. “It’s not legal,” de Buisseret said, “because it’s not being authorised and regulated under the correct [legal] framework.” She goes on to explain, “This is not a human medicine. These, specifically the mRNA injections, cannot be legally defined either as a vaccine or as a human medicine, which is how they’ve been regulated – under the human medicines regulations.” According to expert teams the mRNA synthetic genetic code, which is nanotechnology encased in a lipid particle casing, fits the definition of a medical device rather than a human medicine. As such, it should be regulated under the medical device regulations.
The question of legality of the mass vaccination programme goes across several areas of law. It’s not just whether it’s being regulated properly under that particular bit of legislation. “And they’ve only got an emergency temporary authorization on the basis that a) there’s an emergency well, there is no emergency because we’ve got alternative treatments and we know the figures have been manipulated etc. And, as for the basis on which to justify it: it has to be on the basis that there are no alternative treatments, well there are. So, their whole legality comes massively into question which is why I was very firm saying it’s not legal,” de Buisseret said.
In terms of deciding whether something is criminal one needs to look at the definition of the crimes and the definition of criminal acts. Whether it’s criminal or not in terms of how a tribunal order judge or the public will determine this, only time will tell.
“With criminal law you have to commit the acts. The acts that led to the harm, suffering, loss or death. And you have to have committed the act with intent, to do harm. But the thing about intent is that you can infer the intent because it’s based on knowledge. So, if you know that the act you’ve committed is going to cause harm, loss, suffering, or death then that’s your intent to do it,” de Buisseret explained. She continued, “it crosses many different areas of both statute law, civil law, criminal law, common law, God’s laws, international laws. So, frankly, the legal analysis is vast because there is so many different laws being broken. It’s absolutely horrendous. We lawyers are totally gobsmacked at just how all the laws seem to be being trashed and nobody seems to care to uphold them. And it’s a crisis.”
She points out that another of the reasons the UK was in such crisis is because the police – being our public servants are obliged to investigate if a member of the public comes with prima facie evidence but, – are just “not interested” and do not even “want to look at it”.
“In our local community [we established] that there was sufficient evidence to know that various clinics in the area would not obtaining informed consent from people. And that people were in fact dying and being seriously harmed by [the Covid injection],” de Buisseret said.
De Buisseret also discussed the Nuremberg Trials in the context of Covid-19. “A lot of people haven’t even heard of the Nuremberg Trials let alone bothered to read the judgments,” she said and explains that the judgements are incredibly important reading because everything that is happening now, is cited in the Nuremberg Trials – doctors and nurses saying, through the culture of blame and silence: “I had to keep my job”, “I had to keep quiet”, “I had a mortgage”, or, “I had relatives to look after” – all the same reasons that people are giving today.
“And yet, when you hear how those defences were put forward and then how the tribunal dealt with them, you will see very clearly that, there is first of all, ignorance of the law is no defence. So, the fact that people say ‘well, I didn’t know I was breaking the law’, is no defence,” said de Buisseret. And, turning a blind eye or just assuming any comparison to the Nuremberg Trials is “a crazy conspiracy theory”, is ignorance. Because, it is a legal process of bringing people to account.
De Buisseret gave some ideas how the public can get involved in their “Informed Consent Campaign” and if you want to find out more, they will be setting up a website “Consent Alliance” and a channel on Telegram.
