The book explores and explains the relationship between law and ethics in the context of medically related research in order to provide a practical guide to understanding for members of research ethics committees (RECs), professionals involved with medical research and those with an academic interest in the subject.
The law will be set out as it relates to the functions of RECs within the context of the process of ethical review so that it is accessible and readily understood by REC members. Each chapter will begin by locating the material within the practical context of ethical review and then will provide a more theoretical and analytical discussion detailing how the theory and practice fit together.
The key legal issues of confidentiality, consent and negligence will be addressed in detail, alongside practical guidance as to how and when liability may be incurred in these areas. Finally, the practical and legal implications of the implementation of European Directive 2001/20/EC will be considered alongside a discussion of its socio-political background and relevance for medical research in the UK.
