When autonomous patients consent following adequate information about both the known and intended, and known possible-but-unintended outcomes of treatment (and they are not manipulated or coerced), then they can be said to have intended to consent to the potential unintended consequences of treatment. It would be difficult to assert that a patient intended to consent to outcomes about which they were not informed. A patient who is inadequately informed is therefore not making an autonomous choice because intention is a requirement for autonomous choice.
