This book brings together new work by some of the foremost writers in the health care law arena. It presents exciting new insights,drawing on feminist theory and methodology to further our understanding of health care law.;Whilst the book makes a real contribution to both feminist debates and the analysis of this area of law, it is also accessible to the undergraduate student who is approaching this area of legal scholarship and feminist jurisprudence for the first time.

Its focus is not merely on those issues which have traditionally excited feminist attention, but also includes those subjects which have proved of less apparent interest such as confidentiality, medical research, medical negligence and professional discipline.

Health care law and feminism - a developing relationship; rethinking the Bolam Test; professional regulation - a gendered phenomenon?; informed consent in practice; feminist perspectives on mental health law; the medical treatment of children; research bodies - feminist perspectives on clinical research; feminism and health care resource allocation; health confidentiality in the age of talk; rewriting the doctor - medical law, literature and feminist strategy; frameworks of analysis for feminisms' accounts of reproductive technology; rethinking autonomy, commodification and the embodied legal self; perspectives on enforced thoughts on ""life"" and death; a feminist reflects on women's experiences of death and dying.
