Abstract The importance of the consenting process, as a key activity in patient care, has been recognised by the Department of Health with the production of a policy aimed at ensuring patient focused national standards. Cancer treatments are complex and multi-disciplinary encompassing difficult issues around outcomes and toxicity.

Examples of difficult scenarios are given to illustrate the application of the basic principles.
