BMA releases doctors’ guide to medical ethics dilemmas

Extract from NHS Networks

Such dilemmas could include whether serious but unproven allegations of patients’ violence and abuse should be recorded in their medical notes, or whether doctor should tell people if their partners are HIV positive.

Everyday Medical Ethics and Law, extracts the practical advice on everyday ethical dilemmas found in the BMA’s more extensive ethics handbook, and presents it as a reference guide in paperback format.

It summarises best-practice standards, legal benchmarks and advice from expert organisations on areas such as the doctor-patient relationship, consent, capacity, confidentiality and the management of health records.
