Alberta, Canada

The following excerpt is from Malinowski v. Schneider, 2010 ABQB 734 (CanLII):

The effect and operation of consent forms has been addressed in the context of chiropractic treatment. Justice Yamauchi in Dickson v. Pinder, at para. 87, concluded that a consent form did not document informed consent as the patient in that matter did not understand “... the meaning and implications of the statements contained in that form.”
