Fiche détaillée de "Legal, social and ethical perspectives on health & technology"

Situated at the intersection between health and technology, this book aims at illustrating and disentangling questions and dilemmas generated by the interaction between humans and technological transitions in the health and medical domains. The book explores the opportunities and challenges for citizens, patients, practitioners, researchers, policy-makers and healthcare providers regarding health and medical technologies, while shedding some light on regulatory and governance issues that arise in this area. By adopting a four-fold approach to the analysis, the book speaks to the citizen, the patient, and consumer, as well as to the practitioner, social scientist, ethicist, regulator and policy-maker, active in health research and practice. In the chapters of the book, legal, social, and ethical dilemmas raised by the dichotomy of health and technology are inspected in the context of bodies and cities, clinics and market arenas.
