The role of law in the patient-physician relationship.
ISALM'93. International symposium. Berlin DEU, 1993/08/30.
Free or bound decision, individual responsibility or professional ethical control, conduct according to conscience or to legal directives : these buzzword dyads indicate just a few of the issues with which a physician sees himself confronted in his decision-making.
And indeed not only in cases of extraordinary procedures, such as reanimation and transplantation, sterilization and fertilization, abortion and perinatology, psychosurgery and sex-change operations, experiments on human subjects and gene manipulation ; but also in the day-to-day routine of patient referral or non-referral, or of continuation or termination of treatment, a physician faces the dilemma of whether or not he may take advantage of opportunities that present themselves.
