Description
In the course of practicing medicine, a range of issues may arise that need a legal solution. As a result, the application of law to the field of medical practice has become increasingly important and this has further been strengthened by contemporary developments relating to law and ethics, medical malpractice, and bio-ethics and regulatory requirements for the healthcare industry. With a comprehensive introduction and an appraisal of the Indian medical education system, this work examine a variety of issues that challenge the legal and medical fraternity in the face of rapidly advancing medical technology. It addresses issues such as organ transplant, euthanasia, surrogacy, abortion, the concept of consent, sex selection, clinical trials, designer babies, cosmetic enhancement procedures, and confidentiality. The general aim of this book is to discuss a number of important and interrelated issues in life of modern man in medicine and the law. That discussion is not only on material aspects of those issues but also on the forms of knowledge which enable us to develop the relevant arguments and to coep with related experiences in everyday life. These issues are on the whole understood in terms of the 'law-medicine relationship' or the 'law and medicine interface'. However, a reflexion on the philosophical and cultural basis of those expressions shows the shortcomings of that approach and the need for an understanding of that relationship in terms of intertwining discourses.
