Develop your skills and confidence in approaching everyday medical ethics and legal issues - from consent to capacity and confidentiality - with this practical guide from the BMA.
Everyday Medical Ethics and Law is a practical guide to the common issues and dilemmas faced by doctors. Drawing upon enquiries to the BMA's Ethics Department, it is written under the direction of the BMA's Medical Ethics Committee and reviewed by leading medical ethicists and lawyers.
Chapters cover the doctor-patient relationship, consent, capacity, children and young people, confidentiality, management of health records, and prescribing. Each chapter is designed for effective learning and teaching with '10 things you need to know about...' introducing the key points of a topic and 'Setting the scene' explaining where the issues occur in real life and why doctors need to understand them.
Real cases and summary boxes highlight the key issues throughout the text and general principles are supplemented by explanations of how they are applied in different scenarios. Everyday Medical Ethics and Law provides a practical approach to common ethical and legal issues and is a helpful reference for busy, practising doctors and other health professionals
