Description
Breakthroughs in technology have resulted in finding answers for many of the human health conditions as well as diseases which were thought to be unbeatable in the past. However the advantages of modern technology are not free from loopholes, especially in the present era of commercialization. Hence, law plays a pivotal role in regulating the use/application of technology in this branch of science to cater to the best interests of the society. Added to this, the ethical considerations surrounding developments in medicine are many, which pose challenges to law and society equally. Unfortunately, the nuances of ethical and legal issues in medicine have not been properly addressed by either the legal or the medical fraternity in India. Hence, an effort is being made in this book to cover the most significant areas of ethico-legal considerations in the field of medicine, especially in the Indian context.
