This is a short textbook of ethics and law aimed primarily at medical students. The book is in two sections. The first considers general aspects of ethics (in the context of medicine); the second section covers the topics identified in the ‘consensus agreement’. The content of medical law is not intended to be comprehensive and relates very much to the ethical issues.
"All the important essential issues students and junior doctors require to be familiar with are covered with the addition of information on the latest topics of end of life care, application of genetics, rationing of healthcare and research ethics." David Miller, 3rd year medical student. Glasgow University
