The webinar will consider the crossover between family law and medicine and what happens when practitioners and judges have to consider moral decisions. It will focus on a case study where there are disputes between parents and medical practitioners; where doctors and parents disagree over treatment – religion; where doctors and parents disagree over continuing life-sustaining treatment; where a child patient does not consent to treatment or refuses treatment. It will explore medical confidentiality and the situation when parents wish to disclose information and insist on genetic testing of their children. Sir Nicholas Francis will lead the discussion which will hear from lawyers in England, France, Sweden, Spain and Alabama.
This session was originally scheduled to have taken place during the Education Programme at the IAFL Annual Meeting in Oslo.
