Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Procedures, surgery, or other treatment without consent of person or persons receiving treatment.

Medical procedures and prescriptions regarding treatment of a patient that can be exercised by other health care personnel when predetermined conditions have been met.

Withholding or withdrawal of a particular treatment or treatments, often (but not necessarily) life-prolonging treatment, from a patient or from a research subject as part of a research protocol. The concept is differentiated from REFUSAL TO TREAT, where the emphasis is on the health professional's or health facility's refusal to treat a patient or group of patients when the patient or the patient's representative requests treatment. Withholding of life-prolonging treatment is usually indexed only with EUTHANASIA, PASSIVE, unless the distinction between withholding and withdrawing treatment, or the issue of withholding palliative rather than curative treatment, is discussed.
