Annual Report of Council, 1985-1986: Medical Ethics
BMJ (British Medical Journal). 1986 Mar 29; 292(6524): 25-27.
Recent activities of the Council of the British Medical Association related to ethical and public policy issues are described. The Council has been working to improve the network of local research ethics committees and favors the establishment of a national committee to review research proposals. It has been engaged in efforts to shape the Data Protection Act to safeguard the confidentiality of personal health records and to protect the confidentiality of minors who seek contraceptive advice without their parents' knowledge. Other Council concerns include advertising by the medical profession and the physician's role in law enforcement in Great Britain and in investigations of torture on the international scene.
