Autor Margaret Brazier, Emma Cave
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 9 aug 2016
From embryo research, cloning and assisted conception to neonatal care, saviour siblings and organ transplants, the advancements of modern medicine have transformed the field almost beyond recognition. As the law struggles to keep up with the rate of change, legal claims against doctors and the NHS have increased and practitioners increasingly feel under siege. This acclaimed and accessible book provides a survey of the legal situation in areas as diverse as fertility treatment, surrogacy, patient consent, euthanasia and the definition of death, malpractice and medical privacy. The sixth edition has been fully revised and updated to cover: - Over fifty new cases with the latest legal developments in areas such as court-authorised sterilisation, treatment without consent and confidentiality - Analysis of recent Supreme Court decisions on informed consent (Montgomery v Lanarkshire 2015], assisted dying (Nicklinson and Lamb v Ministry of Justice 2014]), conscientious objection (Doogan v Greater Glasgow Health Board 2014]) and deprivation of liberty (Cheshire West 2014]) - New national and EU legislation on healthcare research, organ donation and data protection, plus doomed and on-going legislative reform proposals including those on assisted dying, NHS redress and medical innovation - Recent guidance and reports such as the General Medical Council's Good Medical Practice (2013), the Francis Inquiry report (2013) and Select Committee Reports on mental capacity, with analysis of reforms within the NHS such as the duty of candour, legal aid and professional regulation - Recent technological advances from assisted conception and cloning to human tissue and the regulatory response Medicine, patients and the law will be essential reading for medical and law students, lecturers and healthcare professionals. It will also be of interest to anyone whose perusal of the daily news causes wonder, hope and consternation at the advances and limitations of medicine and the law and of the impact upon patients.
