What makes health public? : a critical evaluation of moral, legal, and political claims in public health by John Coggon( )

14 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 787 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John Coggon argues that the important question for analysts in the fields of public health law and ethics is 'what makes health public?' He offers a conceptual and analytic scrutiny of the salient issues raised by this question, outlines the concepts entailed in, or denoted by, the term 'public health' and argues why and how normative analyses in public health are inquiries in political theory. The arguments expose and explain the political claims inherent in key works in public health ethics. Coggon then develops and defends a particular understanding of political liberalism, describing its implications for critical study of public health policies and practices. Covering important works from legal, moral, and political theory, public health, public health law and ethics, and bioethics, this is a foundational text for scholars, practitioners and policy bodies interested in freedoms, rights and responsibilities relating to health"--
Criminal law, philosophy and public health practice( )

12 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 702 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The goal of improving public health involves the use of different tools, with the law being one way to influence the activities of institutions and individuals. Of the regulatory mechanisms afforded by law to achieve this end, criminal law remains a perennial mechanism to delimit the scope of individual and group conduct. Utilising criminal law may promote or hinder public health goals, and its use raises a number of complex questions that merit exploration. This examination of the interface between criminal law and public health brings together international experts from a variety of disciplines, including law, criminology, public health, philosophy and health policy, in order to examine the theoretical and practical implications of using criminal law to improve public health"--

Public health law : ethics, governance, and regulation by John Coggon( )

8 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Public health activity, and the state's public health responsibilities to assure the conditions in which people can be healthy, can only be achieved through different means of social coordination. This places law and regulation at the heart of public health. They are fundamental both to methods of achieving public health goals and to constraints that may be put on public health activity. As such, trainees, practitioners, and leaders in public health need to understand the breadth and nature of wide-ranging legal and regulatory approaches and the place of ethics in public health. [This book] defines and examines this crucial area of study and practice. It advances an agenda whose scope extends far beyond that covered in traditional medical law and health care law texts. The authors provide an account of the scale of contemporary public health policy and practice and explain its philosophical depths and implications and its long legislative and regulatory history. They advance a definition of the field and explore how different legal approaches may serve and advance or constrain and delimit public health agendas. This ... book presents the field of public health ethics and law and goes on to examine the impact within the UK of private law, criminal law, public law, EU and international law, and 'softer' regulatory approaches."--
Ethical judgments : re-writing medical law by Stephen W Smith( Book )

8 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This edited collection is designed to explore the ethical nature of judicial decision-making, particularly relating to decisions in the health/medical sphere, where judges are often called upon to make decisions in cases containing an explicit ethical component. However, judges do not receive any specific training in ethical decision-making, and often disown any place for ethics in their decision-making. Consequently, decisions made by judges do not present consistent or robust ethical theory, even when cases appear to rely on moral claims. This project explores this dichotomy by imagining a world in which decisions by judges have to be ethically as well as legally valid. Nine specific cases are reinterpreted in light of that requirement by leading academics in the fields of medical law and bioethics. Two judgements are written in each case, allowing for different views to be presented. Two commentaries-one ethical and one legal-explore the ramifications of these ethical judgments and provide an opportunity to explore the two judgments from additional ethical and legal perspectives. These four different approaches to each judgment allow for a rich and varied critique of the decisions and ethical theories and issues at play in each case."--

End-of-life law and assisted dying in the 21st century : time for cautious revolution? by Alexandra Katherine Mullock( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In the medical context, it is an accepted (yet controversial) fact that doctors may sometimes legitimately hasten death when providing palliative care to dying patients. Or even, in relation to treatment decisions leading to withdrawal or omission, some doctors may choose death over life for certain patients and yet we seldom hear of doctors in the dock for intentional killing. Where complicity in suicide is concerned, it seems that the compassionate lay person has little reason to be fearful of criminal reprisal. The question, however, of whether a person suspected of complicity in suicide, or a doctor suspected of intentionally causing the death of a patient, will be greeted by sympathy or condemnation is a legal minefield. A range of diverse legal, moral and circumstantial factors will determine firstly, whether one is prosecuted and secondly, whether one will be subject to juridical disapproval and possible incarceration. This thesis sets out to explore whether continued obfuscation, together with turning a blind eye to possible breaches of the law, is the best approach to the moral dilemma over what should be permitted in assisted dying and end-of-life law. This is not a rhetorical question with a trite answer. Such obfuscation may be viewed as having certain advantages. This thesis explores the legal and ethical issues in the context of recent developments, societal concerns and international influences in order to examine whether the current legal position in respect of homicide and complicity in suicide is tenable. The analysis invites the conclusion that whilst some legal change is both desirable and necessary, any legal reform should seek to facilitate a cautious compromise that reflects the legitimate concerns of those opposed to legal change
