To the Editor We applaud the article by Tait and Hutchinson1 and the initiative by JAMA Pediatrics to facilitate a discussion on an often neglected but critical aspect of pediatric practice. Consent, in the current era, needs to be seen and taught to trainees as a 4-way conversation between physician, child, parent, and the media. Consent also needs to be seen as not just a conduit of information but a component of the overall therapeutic partnership between physician and patient.
