Description : In a clear and accessible way, the author highlights the relationship between law and ethics explaining how, if and when they overlap and how they diverge. Written in a non-technical, comprehensible and concise style, this topical text presents information and then encourages the reader to work through the differences and similarities between law and ethics. It teases out comparisons and examines how the 'moral' approach differs from the 'legal' one. Case studies at the beginning of each chapter demonstrate scenarios that health professionals may face in day-to-day practice. These are then developed with a theoretical discussion of the legal and ethical issues they reflect.
