Medical Self-regulation : Crisis and Change, Hardback Book

Medical Self-regulation : Crisis and Change Hardback

Part of the Medical Law and Ethics series


Self-regulation constitutes an important aspect of the regulatory and oversight process governing professionals.

This book focuses directly on medical self-regulation in the context of both the wider regulatory framework and that of other regulatory models.

Through a critical consideration of recent events, including high-profile and controversial cases, it is demonstrated that the self-regulatory process has failed and that only fundamental restructuring and a radical change in attitudes on the part of members of the profession can repair the damage.

Attention is also given to the recent changes, current proposals for change and to alternative regulatory models. Medical Self-Regulation will be of international interest, appealing to policy makers, as well as students and practitioners in the fields of medicine, medical law and sociology and professional regulation.
