Issues in Medical Law and Ethics

Publisher: Taylor and Francis Release date: 2001-03-28

Description

Thirty years ago, English jurist Patrick Devlin wrote: "e;Is it not a pleasant tribute to the medical profession that by and large it has been able to manage its relations with its patients ... without the aid of lawyers and law makers"e;. Medical interventions at the beginnings and the endings of life have rendered that assessment dated if not defeated. This book picks up some of the most important of those developments and reflects on the legal and social consequences of this metamorphosis over the pasttenyears, and will be of interest to students of law, sociology and ethics who want a considered and critical introduction to, and reflection on, key issues in these pivotal moments of human life.
