Course Description

This course will familiarize students with the basic concepts of law as formal social constraint and ethics as informal social mores as they relate to the delivery of health care. Health care law will track the growing right to privacy as developed and applied by the U.S. Supreme Court in cases involving contraception and abortion, the right to refuse treatment, the right to withhold treatment and the right to die. Health care ethics will address questions regarding non-legal but essential societal decisions regarding who gets care and how and the right of health care professionals to refuse to treat. Ethical and legal questions in the area of informed consent, privacy of information and access to information will also be covered.
