[Research Presentation] In Korean society based on the patriarchal system, authority is very important in the relationship between patient and physician, and therefore, there is an unequal relationship between patient and physician.áEver since the informed consent was introduced from Western society, people were aware of the need for informed consent; however, because of the discrepant relationship between patient and physician, there wasáa large gap in perspectives of patient and of physician toward informed consent.áThe purpose of this study is to understand and examine the attributes of different perspectives toward informed consent and to provide an index in order for informed consent to be settled and used without much problem. This study has verified the attributesáby hybrid model to define the concept of informed consent.á12 patients and 12 physicians were interviewed after selecting departments, including orthopedics, thoracic surgery, and obstetrics/gynecology, from two university hospitals in Seoul and Gwang-ju through a pilot test.áResult was analyzed by 6 categories including perspective toward informed consent, attitude toward establishing a rapport between a physician and a doctor, topic of what was informed, method of decision making, and the content of what was explained.áThe patients thought trust relationship was an important factor toward informed consent; however, physicians considered legal perspective to be more important, and they said that informed consent was explained by residents by using medical terminology.áMoreover, decisions about treatment were made mostly by physicians or family members, and sometimes explanation was not given to the patient if prognosis was not good.áDuring the physician and patient interaction, the explanation was not delivered well due to the perceived superior role of the physician by the patient, and patients perceived that the physicians were giving informed consent in order to allow themselves to be exempt from legal responsibility.
