Law and Medical Ethics

by Alexander Mc Call Smith (Author), J.K.Mason (Author)


This volume offers an analysis of ethical concepts based on positive legal principles and court decisions, describing what actually happens in practice, or where there are no precedents available, what is most likely to happen. Broadly, it deals with the wide range of potentially difficult situations in which the community, as represented by the law, may come into conflict with the medical profession. It provides in-depth analysis of many legal points, together with enhanced footnotes and covers areas of medical law, family law, delict, morality and general ethics. It is suitable for medical practitioners, students of law, medicine and medical ethics, and coroners, nurses and area health authorities.
