"Chapter 18 considers the risks and benefits of treatment in general and briefly in special populations, then the doctor–patient relationship, as regards drug prescription and informed consent, as well as the clinician's interface with the pharmaceuticalindustry. A discussion of doctors’ duties and patients’rights follows, ending with the ethical concerns of not only the patient and doctor, but also other key players, such as the family, the media, the courts, drug companies, politicians and third party insurers."
