Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Medical jurisprudence, or forensic medicine in the broad sense (the specific sense of identifying causes of death is a matter of forensic pathology), now embraces all matters which may bring the physician into contact with the law. It thus includes (1), questions of the legal and ethical duties of physicians; (2), questions affecting the civil rights of individuals with respect to medicine; and (3), medicolegal assessment of injuries to the person. Under the second heading there are many aspects, including (but not limited to): (a), questions of competence or sanity in civil or criminal prceedings; (b), questions of competence of minors in matters affecting their own health; and (c), questions of lawful fitness or safety to drive a motor vehicle, pilot an aeroplane, use scuba gear, play certain sport, or to join certain occupations.show more
