The essay analyzes the development of the right of self-determination in medical treatments and the changes it has had on the relationship between doctor and patient. In this perspective, the paper aims, in particular, to verify the limits of the self-determination principle in cases of refusal of life-saving treatment and in the hypothesis of advance directives. It also analyzes the possibility of providing compensation for damages in case the right to self-determination is undermined.
Keywords: Self-determination; doctor-patient relationship; refusal of medical treatments; advance directives; arbitrary treatment; compensation.
