Libertà terapeutica e diritto all'autodeterminazione del malato terminale. Quali implicazioni per il diritto penale?

Translated title of the contribution: [Autom. eng. transl.] Therapeutic freedom and right to self-determination for the terminally ill. What implications for criminal law?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The essay analyses the latest enacted laws on therapeutic freedom and patient’s self- determination. The laws no. 24/2017 (so called “Gelli-Bianco”) and no. 219/2017 (which regulates the informed consent) seem to invite the doctor to select autonomously the therapeutic approach, to comply to public guidelines and to refuse useless or disproportionate therapies. The Author poses questions related to the role of the “terminal” patient’s will in the choice of the therapy and also on the criminal issues of the interaction, even conflicting, between patient’s self-determination and doctor’s autonomy.
