Perioperative medicine and critical care are among the most litigious areas of medicine. The recent failure of doctors to convincingly resolve ethical issues concerning the morality of increasingly technological
treatment has led to a diminution of trust in the medical profession by both the public and politicians, and a correspondingly rapid evolution of medical law.
This book, aimed at doctors, medical students, allied health professionals and lawyers, provides straightforward but detailed analyses of the ethical issues raised by many aspects of perioperative care and intensive medicine, and describes with clarity the current UK law governing such dilemmas.
