Medical Treatment Decisions and the Law covers an increasingly important area of law, seeking to place medical decision-making in its context and to provide practical guidance to the solution of many problems likely to be encountered in practice.

With a unique collection of valuable materials not easily obtained elsewhere, this important refernce work examines both the general principles and specific problems such as caesarean sections, anorexia and persistent vegetative state. Ths new second edition has been fully updated to take account of the Mental Capacity Act 2005. Coverage includes important caselaw ie. the Baby Wyatt case and a brand-new chapter on organs and transplantations.
