Overview

Explanation of current Czech legal status of informed consent is presented. The main law is the Convention on Human Rights and Biomedicine. Its direct application is possible only in those provisions which are self-executing. The basic Czech law is Law No. 20/1966 on care for health of people. It is possible to show incongruity in some articles and some provisions of the Convention need special provisions which are lacking. Institute of informed consent is gradually incorporated in the Czech health care facilities; its exercise should be improved.

Key words:
