Exploitation in the doctor-patient relationship

Project: Other


This project (with Prof Hazel Biggs (School of Law, University of Southampton)) explores the concept of exploitation in the particular context of the doctor-patient relationship. Thus far, this has led to:
- a book chapter on whether the criminal law should be utilised to criminalise consensual sexual activity in the doctor-patient relationship, published in 2012
- a book chapter on patient initiated sexual boundary breaches, published in 2015
- a journal article on whether sexual boundary breaches in the doctor-patient relationship would be better dealt with by fiduciary law, published in 2016
We are currently working on the final, major output: a co-authored book, 'Exploitation in the Doctor-Patient relationship: Ethics and Law', to be published by Routledge.
