Synopsis: The unit aims to help students become familiar with the tools and vocabulary of ethical discourse in medicine. A framework for this discourse is built, based on the four basic principles of autonomy, beneficence, non-maleficence and justice. The elements which go to make up the Australian Legal System are covered as well as those particular areas of law relating to forensic medical practice, ie. consent, confidentiality and disclosure, issues at both the beginning and end of life.

Assessment: Assignment + Case studies + Presentations + Case book
