    DescriptionMedical law is one of the fastest moving areas of law; barely a week can go by without a change to the legal provisions, or a new key case passing through the courts. Medical Law and Ethics is the most regularly updated textbook on medical law, so you can be confident that it takes into account the most recent developments in the law. With exceptional clarity Medical Law and Ethics covers not only the core legal principles, the key cases, and statutes that all govern medical law, but also portrays the key ethic debates and dilemmas that exist in the field to ensure that the law is firmly embedded within its context. Carefully constructed features highlight the key debates where relevant to provide an overview of the different perspectives; from feminists, the European perspective, and different religious views. 'A shock to the system', 'public opinion' and 'reality check' features all introduce different sociological aspects, contributing to the lively and engaging manner with which the subject is approached. Online Resource Centre Accompanied by an Online Resource Centre, which includes additional links to key cases, web links, and updates along with an introductory video podcast from the author to set the scene for your study.
