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 strenghened by contemporary developments relating to law and ethics, medical malpractice, and bio-ethics and regulatory requitrments for the healthcare industry.
With a comprehensive introduction and an appraisal og the Indian medical education system, this work examines a variety of issues that challenge the legal and medical fraternity in the face of raidly advancing medical technology. It addresses issues such as organ transplant, euthansia, surrogacy, abortion, the concept of consent, sex selection, clinical trials, designer banbies, cosmetic enhancement procedures, and confidentiality.
Adopting an interdisciplinary approach, the author provides a comparative study with special focus on Indian case law and jurisdictions from other countries including the US and the UK.
