Quick Overview

by Professor Deirdre Madden

This book examines the relationship between medicine, ethics and the law in Ireland. It provides a comprehensive and accessible analysis of the main legal and ethics and issues in healthcare and the relationship between doctors and patients by examining the relevant case law and legislative provisions in Ireland and, where appropriate, in other jurisdictions, and by looking at important academic contributions to the field. It explores the key issues of the importance of patient-centred care, respect for autonomy and human dignity, the protection of human rights, and the appropriate role of law in healthcare. This title is included in Bloomsbury Professional’s Irish Medical Law online service.
