With the advances of medicine, questions of medical ethics have become more urgent and are now considered of great social and political significance. An innovatively designed, activity-based workbook, this text was prepared using papers and case studies collected from several countries in the European Union. It reflects the issues and concerns that confront clinical practitioners throughout Europe and elsewhere today and presents varying national responses in law and policy to these concerns, as identified by ethicists, lawyers, theologians and practitioners. The problems they examine include the relationship between medical research and medical practice, elementary regulations of medical research, the complexity of informed consent, and the role of the sponsor or scientific community.

Jürgen Boomgaarden received his Dr.Theol in 1997. His publications include a book on the theology and philosophy of Dietrich Bonhoeffer. He is Assistant Professor in medical ethics at University of Tübingen.

Pekka Louhiala is a pediatrician who also holds a degree in philosophy. He teaches medical ethics at the University of Helsinki and has published on various topics inpediatric epidemiology, medical ethics and philosophy of medicine.

Urban Wiesing studied medicine, philosophy, sociology and history of medicine. Since 1998 he has been Professor and Chair of Medical Ethics at the University of Tübingen.
