Medical Law and Ethics Summary


Medical Law and Ethics by Edited by Professor Sheila A. M. McLean

Over the last 20 or 30 years of the 20th century the discipline of medical law has become an acknowledged area of specialism in law schools and medical faculties throughout the world. The medical lawyer is required to engage with philosophy, medicine, law, nursing, and social and political policy. As medicines progress, so the opportunity - even need - to use human subjects in research expands. Although a practice with a long history, the treatment of human research subjects has long been controversial and remains so. Few subjects can be so emotive as the decisions made by individuals at the end of life. Although this text covers many aspects of medical law, it is confined to four broad areas, from the traditional issues in medical law, such as negligence, to the specifically "modern" problems - issues at the beginning and end of life.
