Overview

Adverse effects of drugs are a constant source of medical problems but also of professional and legal confrontations. More than a quarter of all malpractice suits brought against physicians or other health professionals revolve around drug injury; for drug manufacturers, civil cases brought by patients are growing problem. Where conflicts do not reach the courts they are often the subject of settlements or of decisions taken by professional disciplinary councils. Uniguely, this book analysis and documents the responsibilities which all parties bear in law and ethics to render drug treatment as safe as it can be, and the liability whidh arises when injury is siffered. Special attention is devoted to the apportionment of liability, where faults may have been made by more than one party, and to the establishment of facts in a field where the evidence is likely to be heavily challenged. The pproach is global, since drugs, their makers and their users are much the same across the world; what is more systems of law and ethics have borrowed solutions from one another, while in some parts of the world - notably in consultations between the United States, Europe and Japan, medicinal policies and regulations are fast being harmonized. Contents: Six chapters in the book document the general medical and legal background to drug safewty and injury; seven set out the duties and liability of the parties concerned ranging from health professionals through governments and institutions to the patient himself. Eight chapters provide in-depth guidance on special issues including drug injury to the unborn child, vaccines, liability in alternative medicine and existing compensation schemes.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
This edition reflects the evolution of legal standards, professional rules, industrial codes of ethics, and court experience in cases involving recompense for medical injury since the 1988 version. While deriving from legal standards of the US, British Commonwealth, European Union, and Nordic Council, a chapter is devoted to issues particular to developing countries. Following an introductory chapter on the emergence and recognition of problems relating to drug safety, 20 chapters cover such areas as: the legal framework (types of proceedings, evidence, and proof); the responsibility of everyone from the government and manufacturer to the prescriber and patient; clinical investigation of drugs; controlled drugs; self-medication; alternative and complementary medicine; and vaccines and biologicals. Includes a table of cases, and table of conventions, statutes, and regulations. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
