    Medical law and ethics.Jonathan Herring - 2006 - New York: Oxford University Press.
    This book provides a clear, concise description of medical law; but it does more than that. It also provides an introduction to the ethical principles that can be used to challenge or support the law. It also provides a range of perspectives from which to analyse the law: feminist, religious and sociological perspectives are all used.

    Medical Law and Ethics.Leanne Bell - 2012 - Pearson.
    Few subjects provoke as much controversy or debate as that of medical care, and the law that governs such an emotive area finds itself with the near-impossible task of simultaneously trying to regulate the medical profession and healthcare provision whilst upholding the rights of the millions of people who use those services every year. Medical Law combines an accessible explanation of the complex and challenging legal rules of medical care in England and Wales with a stimulating (...)

    Teaching Medical Law in Medical Education.Rebecca S. Y. Wong & Usharani Balasingam - 2013 - Journal of Academic Ethics 11 (2):121-138.
    Although the teaching of medical ethics and law in medical education is an old story that has been told many times in medical literature, recent studies show that medical students and physicians lack confidence when faced with ethical dilemmas and medico-legal issues. The adverse events rates and medical lawsuits are on the rise whereas many medical errors are mostly due to negligence or malpractices which are preventable. While it is true that many medical (...)

    Medical Law and Ethics.Rodney Taylor - 2010 - Human Reproduction and Genetic Ethics 13 (1):37-37.
    This book is a critical, forward-looking, and multidisciplinary text. Its chief aim is to advance understanding of medical law by reference to both moral theory and the rapidly changing context in which medical law must operate. That context includes the impact of market forces and medical tourism, political interests, medical and professional interests, changing perceptions of medicine, developing technologies, limited resources, and the impact of increasingly direct (international and domestic) recognition of human rights.

    Applicable Law for Contracts in the Sporting Context.Ines Medić - 2016 - Seeu Review 12 (1):197-221.
    This article presents an analysis of contractual relations in sport from the standpoint of the Croatian legislative system. Due to the complexity of the subject matter, the author considers only a small fragment of it - the significance and the role of sport in Croatian society and the law of contracts „as a cornerstone on which „sports law“ has been built and which is of primary importance in most areas where there is an interface between sport and the law, irrespective (...)

    Human Rights Reasoning and Medical Law: A Sceptical Essay.Jesse Wall - 2014 - Bioethics 29 (3):162-170.
    I am sceptical as to the contribution that human rights can make to our evaluation of medical law. I will argue here that viewing medical law through a human rights framework provides no greater clarity, insight or focus. If anything, human rights reasoning clouds any bioethical or evaluative analysis. In Section 1 of this article, I outline the general structure of human rights reasoning. I will describe human rights reasoning as reasoning from rights that each person has ‘by (...)

    Summary Principles Timely support for patients and people close to them, and effective, sensitive communication are essential. Decisions must be based on the individual patient's circumstances and reviewed regularly. Sensitive advance discussion should always be encouraged, but not forced. Information about CPR and the chances of a successful outcome needs to be realistic. Practical matters Information about CPR policies should be displayed for patients and staff. Leaflets should be available for patients and people close to them explaining about CPR, how (...)

    Teaching Medical Ethics through Medical Law in advance.Christopher Cowley - forthcoming - Teaching Philosophy.
    Medical ethics is normally taught in a combination of three ways: through discussions of normative theories and principles; through for-and-against debating of topics; or through case studies. I want to argue that a fourth approach might be better, and should be used more: teaching medical ethics through medical law. Medical law is already deeply imbued with ethical concepts, principles and reasons, and allows the discussion of ethics through the “back door,” as it were. The two greatest (...)

Is it lawful to remove food and water provided by tube to a patient in a vegetative state? Is a woman's refusal of a caesarean section recommended for the benefit of the fetus legally decisive? These questions were central to the four focal cases revisited in this book. This book revisits (...)

    Medical Ethics and Medical Law: The Russian Experience.Irina Siluyanova - 2011 - Studies in Christian Ethics 24 (4):462-469.
    The correlation between medical ethics and medical law, while seemingly far removed from the context of Eastern Orthodoxy, is in fact of deep theological significance and eschatological prominence and has become increasingly a matter of concern in contemporary Russia. The following study examines different modes of this correlation and their moral implications for the wider society.

    The relationship between medical law and ethics.J. Miola - 2006 - Clinical Ethics 1 (1):22-25.
    This article seeks to identify a 'problem' in the interaction between medical law and ethics, which is that neither fully appreciates how the other works. In particular, it argues that medical law has not only failed to formulate a consistent conception of the role that medical ethics performs, but it does not adequately differentiate between categories of medical ethics discourse. Consequently, the ethical content of a case, if identified at all, will not be dealt with in (...)

    Disability matters in medical law.K. Diesfeld - 2001 - Journal of Medical Ethics 27 (6):388-392.
    The British Parliament stated that health services would be covered by the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 . However, when people with disabilities are at their most vulnerable, for example when in hospital or subject to medical procedures, the antidiscrimination law fails them. A review of cases indicates that when people with disabilities are subject to medical treatment, the legislative protections are allowed to vanish. Instead, medical decisions are justified on obscure notions such as “best interests”, often with (...)

    Complexities: Social Studies of Knowledge Practices.John Law & Annemarie Mol (eds.) - 2002 - Duke University Press.
    Although much recent social science and humanities work has been a revolt against simplification, this volume explores the contrast between simplicity and complexity to reveal that this dichotomy, itself, is too simplistic. John Law and Annemarie Mol have gathered a distinguished panel of contributors to offer—particularly within the field of science studies—approaches to a theory of complexity, and at the same time a theoretical introduction to the topic. Indeed, they examine not only ways of relating to complexity but complexity _in (...)

Additionally, it examined physician correlates influencing the awareness of bioethics.MethodsFollowing a rigorous review (...)

    Whatever You Want? Beyond the Patient in Medical Law.Richard Huxtable - 2008 - Health Care Analysis 16 (3):288-301.
    Simon Woods proposes that we ought to re-orientate clinical decisions at the end of life back towards the patient, so as to honour his or her account of their “global” interests. Woods condemns the current medico-legal approach for remaining too closely tethered to the views of doctors. In this response, I trace the story of Mrs Kelly Taylor, who sought to be sedated and have life-sustaining treatment withdrawn, and I do so in order to show not only why Woods is (...)

    Medical law is not new in medical literature and can constitute an imperative component in medical education. Some medical schools include medical law as a compulsory component of the curriculum. In line with curriculum re-structuring at the University of Malaya, medical law was integrated in the medical curriculum and the feasibility of this integration into the Year 1 undergraduate curriculum was evaluated. Following implementation of a 4-week medical law module, an evaluation of (...)

    Challenges of traditional bioethical principles in the implementation of contemporary standards of medical law.Hajrija Mujovic-Zornic - 2012 - Filozofija I Društvo 23 (4):71-79.
    The paper focuses on issues of development dimensions of Medical Law and its ongoing process of standardization and harmonization on one hand, versus the traditionally rooted and available principles of biomedical ethics, on the other. The collision of new legal institutes and the spread of human rights protections is evident. This paper follows the theory and practice of medical ethics and medical law. The theoretical aspect points out medical ethics as one of the sources of (...) law. Legal theory makes a distinction between formal and autonomous sources of medical law. Even though ethics is morally much higher, law prevails because it has stronger sanctions and legal power. In its practical aspect, this paper gives examples of different situations of medical decision-making processes. Ethical rules are of the utmost relevance in the domain of confidentiality and options of medical treatment. But, in concrete medical procedures, where legal positions of patients are evidently very significant, law has a more distinct function. Therefore, explaining particular cases from medical malpractice, such as cases of penal, civil or professional liability have an ethical dimension as well. Members of medical professions in Serbia often find these cases unfair. Mostly this is the consequence of ignorance in this kind of medical law and ethics relations. A discussion about practical cases has in that sense a self-learning component, which could be developed to strengthen ethical reasoning and judgment. Clanak stavlja naglasak na razvojnu dimenziju medicinskog prava i pitanja u kojoj meri njegova standardizacija i harmonizacija, na jednoj strani, uticu na primenu tradicionalno ukorenjenih vazecih principa biomedicinske etike, na drugoj. Teorijski aspekt clanka upucuje na medicinsku etiku kao jedan od izvora medicinskog prava koji se smatra autonomnim izvorom. Iako je etika na visoj lestvici, pravo preteze jer ima pravnu snagu element prinude i jacu sankciju za postupanje protivno pravilima. U svom prakticnom aspektu ovaj clanak stavlja naglasak na razlicite situacije pri donosenju medicinskih odluka, gde pravni polozaj onog ko se leci postaje veoma bitan, a pravo tu ima striktno odredjenu funkciju zastite. Zbog toga, objasnjenje posebnih slucajeva pogresne medicinske prakse ima svoj eticki, ali pre svega pravni znacaj, kakvi su slucajevi procesuiranja krivicne, imovinske i staleske odgovornosti. Pripadnici medicinskih profesija u Srbiji cesto smatraju sudske postupke protiv sebe nepravednim. Vecinom je to posledica upravo nepoznavanja odnosa normi medicinskog prava i etickih pravila. Razmatranje slucajeva iz prakse ima i svoju edukativnu komponentu koja na taj nacin unapredjuje eticko promisljanje i osnazuje pravno odlucivanje. (shrink)

    More than a Woman? Embodiment and Sexual Difference in Medical Law.Keywood Kirsty - 2000 - Feminist Legal Studies 8 (3):319-342.
    This article examines law’s representation of embodied female identity in the context of two medical law cases, R. v. Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority, ex parte Blood andB v. Croydon Health Authority. Through an examination of contemporary critiques of female embodiment, in particular the work of Judith Butler, two discursive strategies are suggested for their potential to reconfigure the sexed subject within legal discourse. Firstly, the act of transgression – the flight from purportedly fixed subject positions – can be (...)

This landmark judgment has been of interest to the rest of the common law world. A judicial trend of invoking Montgomery to impose more stringent (...)

    This new edition of Law and Medical Ethics continues to chart the ever-widening field that the topics cover. The interplay between the health caring professions and the public during the period intervening since the last edition has, perhaps, been mainly dominated by wide-ranging changes in the administration of the National Health Service and of the professions themselves but these have been paralleled by important developments in medical jurisprudence.

    In common law, the traditional rule has been that there is no property in excised human tissue. In an era of widespread commodification of tissue, however, the practical reasons behind this position are increasingly outdated, while the philosophical grounds are paradoxical. This no-property rule has been construed so as to deprive tissue providers of ongoing rights, whereas researchers, universities, and biotechnology companies are prone to assume that once they acquire proprietary rights, those rights are complete and undifferentiated. That position can (...)
