What is an Autonomous Person?

Posted by Laura on April 15, 2015

Autonomous Person

  • An autonomous person is able to consider the risks and benefits of a situation
  • An autonomous person and then analyze how they relate to their own personal goals and values
  • An autonomous person can then take action upon their analysis

The Informed consent will provide the information the require. If anyone has diminished autonomy, then additional protection should be given. Children, people with developmental disorders, dementia, or disabilities should be given the respect of providing protection.
