Abstrakt

This article examines the genre of Informed Consent Forms (ICFs) in German. ICFs serve as an example par excellence of communication between experts and laypersons, in this case doctors and patients, although functionally, ICFs are expected to adopt the patient’s perspective. This article focuses on the representation of actions as events through the linguistic means of agent demotion (e.g. passives), discussing to what extent ICFs contribute to obscuring both the risks of treatment and medical responsibility. Suggestions for optimising the texts are made.
