Consent: if a patient doesn't want treatment, they cannot be forced into it, even though it wouldn't be in their best interests. This is the case with any medical treatment. In the case of leukaemia, if someone didn't want chemo, or a bone marrow transplant etc, medical staff would have to respect that decisionSource(s): 16 year old leukaemia survivor x2
