Cases in Medical Ethics and Law is a fully interactive, stand-alone teaching and learning tutorial for students of medical ethics. It can be used by individuals or small groups and takes a problem-based-learning approach to the complex legal and ethical issues raised by six scenarios. These are based on real cases that clearly demonstrate the problems arising from recent medical advancements. The cases cover reproductive technology, consent, genetic screening, participation in research trials, paternity and confidentiality. Each is presented with drop-down menus, notebooks, required response boxes, and audio and video clips. Additional features of the CD-ROM are a comprehensive glossary and cross-references to The Cambridge Medical Ethics Workbook. It will be invaluable where ethics is taught as a requirement of the medical degree course.
