Medical Law and Ethics in Hong Kong 2016 by Abraham Wai, David Wong, Gavin Joynt, Rita Cheung, published by Sweet & Maxwell.
“Medical Law and Ethics in Hong Kong is a novel work, offering a comprehensive and coherent analysis of the legal and ethical dimensions of medical practice as part of a larger whole, that of the law of torts, human rights and criminal law. Within the general text, there are many thought-provoking discussions of the ongoing debates on medical negligence, reproduction, euthanasia and patients’ rights and autonomy in law. This book will prove a valuable resource for practitioners, healthcare professionals, doctors, lawyers, and students of medical law, and I commend it to all readers.”
Written by doctors and lawyers,the book is essential reading for practitioners in both professions who are concerned with the medico-legal aspects of beginning and end of life issues,as well as advances in medical research and technology and patients' rights and autonomy in law.
This illuminating text,written in a style of marked lucidity, will be of great benefit to practitioners, healthcare professionals, doctors, lawyers, students and teachers of medical law. In the burgeoning field of medico-legalstudies, the book represents the clearest available accounts of the genesis of medical law and ethics in Hong Kong.
