Derived from the renowned multi-volume International Encyclopaedia of Laws, this convenient volume provides comprehensive analysis of the law at EU level affecting the physician-patient relationship and the interaction of physicians with other healthcare providers and the healthcare system.
Although the legal aspects of healthcare in Europe most often fall under national law, the past two decades have witnessed the emergence of a distinctive field of EU health law with its own underlying principles and structural coherence, founded in a series of directives and CJEU decisions. This book examines the areas in which EU law now must be taken into account in healthcare, including aspects of patients' rights, recognition of professional qualifications and minimum training conditions, professional rules of conduct, clinical trials and investigations of medicinal products and medical devices, health and genetic data, and beginning and end of life issues.
Succinct and practical, this book will prove to be of great value to professional organizations of physicians, nurses, hospitals, and relevant government agencies. Lawyers representing parties with interests in the European Union will welcome this very useful guide, and academics and researchers will appreciate its comparative value as a contribution to the study of health law and medical law in the international context.
