Ethical Practice in Laboratory Medicine and Forensic Pathology

  • ISBN 9789290212461
This text identifies and discusses a number of challenging ethical issues that arise during the daily work of clinical laboratories and forensic medical practice. Addressed to the staff and managers of these facilities, the book aims to encourage appreciation of the impact that test results and examinations can have on patients of the judicial system and the corresponding responsibility to conduct such work with great precision and accuracy. Issues discussed range from the right of a laboratory to refuse to perform a test, through to conflicts of interest that may arise when investigations are ordered by a government agency, to the dilemma created when a forensic pathologist discovers mistakes that occurred in medical management prior to death or injury.
