Health Communication Law

Description

The course will present the background, the objectives and the real impact of most legal norms (and leading judicial decisions) relevant to health communication. Starting with fundamental principles like freedom of expression, protection of privacy or the right to information, it will then deal with more specific topics like advertising for medicaments and medical services, medical confidentiality or the informed consent of the patient. As modern communication does not stop at national borders and as regulations change more and more quickly, the relevant rules will not be described and discussed from a purely legalistic perspective (as would be the case with lawyers), but from an international and dynamic one, with a focus on current and future Swiss and EU regulations.
