Ethics and the Law in Medicine – in Research and Healthcare


Edited By Joanna Długosz, Jan C. Joerden, Elżbieta Paszyńska and Florian Steger

This volume contains contributions from the international and interdisciplinary scientific conference "Ethics and the Law in Medicine – in Research and Healthcare", which took place at the Faculty of Law and Administration of the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań and at the Poznan University of Medical Sciences. The contributions to these proceedings encompass a broad spectrum of current medico-ethical questions that arise in particular disciplines. Compared to monographic works, interdisciplinary anthologies have the advantage of bringing together scientists from different disciplines into conversation on controversial issues from different scientific perspectives. The aim is an interdisciplinary discussion on challenging questions in medicine – conducted from different viewpoints. The volume's contributions also highlight differences in the analysis and assessment of medico-ethical dilemmas due to socio-cultural differences.

This is to be achieved through a comparative analysis of the binding legal status in Germany and Poland with respect to the importance of the legal conditions of a legal interest holder in determining the unlawfulness of his act, in particular on the example of consent to medical treatments interfering with the life, health or physical integrity of a human being.


Mimo że problem zróżnicowań społecznych już od kilku lat znajduje się w centrum dyskusji naukowej, praktyczna implementacja wyników tej dyskusji, zwłaszcza dotyczących wpływu wielokulturowości na prawo karne, jest wciąż niedostatecznie opracowana naukowo i wymaga usystematyzowanych badań. Celem niniejszego artykułu jest wypełnienie tych luk badawczych i omówienie niektórych zagadnień odnoszących się do problemu różnorodności społecznej i dostępu do służby zdrowia, co do...
