DH Process of Care: The dental hygiene process of care is an organized framework that aims to provide dental hygienist with the tools to provide quality and individualized oral hygiene care that meets the client's needs.

The Health Care Consent Act (HCCA) sets out explicit rules and specifies when consent is required and who can give the consent when the client is incapable of doing so (College of Nurses of Ontario (CNO), 2009). According to the HCCA (1996), there is no minimum age for providing or refusing consent in Ontario. A person is capable if he or she understands the information given that is relevant to making a decision concerning the treatment, and can appreciate the anticipated consequences of both accepting or declining a treatment.

Before an officer obtains a search warrant, they must submit an under-oath application of a search warrant to the appropriate judge. The officer then prepares an affidavit Preparing which describes the place to be searched, the items to be searched, and the reason why the officers think the things that they are searching for will be at a location. Before the warrant is signed officers must prove to a neutral judge that probable cause exists and that a crime is happening at a place or an evidence of a crime is in a place. For a magistrate to sign a warrant, they must believe that probable cause exists. If the judge finds there is probable cause for a search to take place, he signs the warrant to make it official and then officers can go to the place to search.
In criminal law when a criminal act is alleged to have been committed, the essential requirement for the crime is that the victim was opposed to the crime. One of the available defences when a criminal act is committed is that the victim actually gave consent to the acts . The defence of consent is available to certain case that result in bodily harm which includes assault and battery. For instance, in sports there is a physical contact. Participants are deemed to have consented to the physical contact and possible bodily harm.
Informed consent is the process by which the treating health care provider discloses appropriate information to a competent patient so that the patient may make a voluntary choice to accept or refuse treatment. (Appelbaum, 2007)1 It originates from the legal and ethical right the patient has to direct what happens to her body and from the ethical duty of the physician to involve the patient in her health care. In order for the consent to be valid, the patient must be competent to take the particular decision; have received sufficient information to make a decision; and not be acting under stress.2,3 This may be an issue if consent is obtained upon the day of surgery. Most patients will have firmly decided to proceed for surgery. However,
With the type of service that I work for the way that consent is obtained is through communication with the individuals care manager or funder who will complete an individual assessment, gain consent to share information with our service/ staff and will then forward this on to our service. Once we have received the referral with consent we will then arrange a date for a full assessment which will either be a face to face or telephone assessment where we will then discuss with the individual about consent, why we require consent and who information will be shared with. We will also explain that there are different levels of consent such as partial consent, this will be used for information relating to emergencies or to update family members
1 Introduction Consent can be defined as voluntary agreement, compliance or permission. Consent is a unilateral act, and so consent may be withdrawn by one person. People are allowed to “waive their legal rights” if they choose to do so. This would mean that the victim, by consenting to suffer harm, excuses the wrongful conduct of the person who has inflicted the harm and thereby excuses him/her of being held liable.
literature review Informed consent is an ethical and legal obligation for the physicians to communicate to the patient and results in the patient’s agreement to undergo a medical procedure. It is taken as a safety tool for both patient and the surgical team and Informed consent originated from legal and ethical principles(10); this is done by improving patients’ knowledge and perception about informed consent process that enables the patient to decide on their surgical procedure freely and intentionally without enforcement .in Ethiopia according to guidelines developed in Addis Ababa in April, 2016 of Medical Ethics for doctors in Ethiopia under article 26 states that “It is the duty of the doctor to inform the patient about the treatment
The difference between consent and informed consent is that consent is when a person voluntarily agrees to allow a medical procedure and/or treatment to be done on herself or himself. Consent can either be expressed from a verbal standpoint as well as written documentation, or implied which is determined based off of an act or silence that indicates consent has been authorized. It is important that consent is given either by the patient, or someone authorized to give consent on the patient 's behalf. Informed consent is a legal doctrine giving a patient the right to be informed about potential risks, benefits, and alternatives of a proposed procedure. For example, in terms of alternative options, if there are two or more medical treatment options
In the health care field, the concept of informed consent allows patients to make their own decisions regarding their health care. A patient and physician have a discussion about the details of a medical process. They must discuss risks, alternatives and outcome of treatment. If a patient agrees to the terms of treatment then they are allowing or giving consent to the physician. Patient education and communication are vital during this process.
