Abstract: Patient safety and well-being are very important to safeguard in medical research. A subject's life cannot be sacrificed for the benefits of future mankind, as medical ethics of autonomy dictate the respect of an individual. By reference to the Declaration of Helsinki, this article discusses the ethical principles and processes in obtaining a valid and proper informed consent from the research subjects who should freely consent and voluntarily participate in the clinical research, including the 'contents' of the informed consent and the 'skills' of obtaining informed consent.
