This work, intended for all those interested in the field of medical law, in particular the issues relating to the rights of patients, includes high-level articles on ethics and medical law. The articles - from an international team of contributors - are based on a symposium held in Sweden in 1993.

The papers have been fully revised to bring them up to date and take account of discussions which took place at the event. Articles cover legislative systems governing complaints, consent and malpractice. All are subject to comparative analysis from a number of perspectives.
