The relationship between medical ethics and the legal system in Italy: food for thought

Authors

Abstract

Relations between ethics in general – and medical ethics in particular – and legal systems are complex and have been extensively examined in the literature. The topic is important not only for ethicists and jurists, but also for members of the public, who benefit from the services offered by the professions. While the Italian Institute of Health does not claim to propose new avenues for exploration of the relations between ethics and legal systems, it offers some food for thought in the ongoing debate.
