New book – Medical Law and Ethics: A problem based approach

Written by Bernadette Richards & Jennie Louise (and published by Lexis Nexis) Medical Law and Ethics: A Problem-Based Approach addresses legal and ethical issues in the context of professional medical treatment. In this problem-based approach, readers have the opportunity to work through a series of patient situations. 

Each chapter covers a different perspective in which the rights and responsibilities of medical students, health practitioners and patients are discussed. Insights are also provided into start and end of life decision-making and the ethically complex issue of organ donation.
