Law, Ethics and Epidemiology: The Case of the Cervical Screening Audit
New Zealand Bioethics Journal 2001 June; 2(2): 8-26

The analysis reveals the difficulties likely to arise between investigators and ethics committees when the interests served by important public health research compete with the rigorous protection of patients' privacy.
