9780754622949: Medical Confidentiality and Crime

Medical confidentiality is universally recognised as a value worth protecting. However, difficulties arise when confidential medical information becomes relevant in the context of crime prevention and criminal prosecution. Should medical confidentiality be upheld where the physician holds information which is essential for the investigation of a serious crime; for establishing the truth in a criminal trial; for an accused’s defence; or for the prevention of a criminal offence? And according to which criteria should such decisions be made? Based on an examination of different approaches in medical ethics and a comparison of the relevant law of France, Germany, England and Wales and the US, this book analyses how a balance of the competing interests can best be struck.

About the Author:

Sabine Michalowski, University of Essex, UK

Review:

'...clearly well written and researched...' Crime Prevention and International Safety: An International Journal '...remarkable as much for the quality of its developments as the pertinence of its comparative analysis of French, German English and American legislations...this work will be valued for its didactic nature, as exemplified by the brief conclusions and syntheses that punctuate each chapter, and its pragmatic vision.' Schweizerische Zeitschrift fur Gesundheitsrecht 'Well researched and clearly written, it is a thorough examination of a specific issue, and offers an excellent analysis of how best to balance the competing interests at stake.' Bulletin of Medical Ethics
