About the Book:

Medicine and law, although diverse fields, have much in common and are indeed intricately interwoven. Commanding great public resepct, the pre-dominant demand on the two professions has been service to humanity, one set battered by sickness and disease and the other aggrieved by crime and injustice.

With increasing scientific innovations and enhanced consumer awareness, the doctor of today finds himself entangled in a cobweb of rights and responsibilities. The predicament of the doctor giving emergency treatment to a serious patient without of any knowledge of his medical history, his allergies and above all his nature, knowing full well the risk to the patient's life and limb, can be quite grave.

The technological revolution in medicine have already raised explosive debates and outrageous opinions to 'Euthanasia', 'abortion', and the newly created 'commercial market for human organs' needing a legalistic approach and well-defined policy decisions have been highlighted with precision and clarity.

Authored by a rare medico-legal combine, the book inter-relates medicine and law. It is aimed at a being an useful ready reckoner to the medical man, the lawyer and the citizen when caught in the network of litigation. In addition, it is intended to be an eye-opener to the consumer activists seeking to promote in the welfare of the masses.
