Legal Briefing on Medical Futility and Assisted Suicide
Posted Oct 04 2009 10:01pm
In the latest issue of the Journal of Clinical Ethics 20(3), I have a new article that summarizes both U.S. and international recent legal developments concerning medical futility and assisted suicide.
A second, smaller article summarizes some other recent legal developments concerning: conscience clauses, parental faith healing treatment refusals, IRB regulation, and the new Americans with Disabilities Act.
Relatedly, in a few days, at the ASBH annual conference in Washington, D.C, I will be moderating a panel session titled Legal Update 2009: The Top 10 Legal Developments in Bioethics.
