Advance directives across Asia: A comparative sociolegal analysis

Lead co-editor: Daisy Cheung
Publisher: Cambridge University Press

This book is the first to consider comprehensively and systematically the law and practice of advance directives across Asia. It will thus be important not only as a reference volume that documents how advance directives are regulated and used throughout Asia, but also as an exploration of the concept of the advance directive itself, in context. By examining how advance directives operate in Asian countries, we will also shed light on the principle of personal autonomy in this context, alongside other values and religious and socio-cultural factors that shape health and care decision-making. As such, this book will have broad appeal not only to Asian scholars, students, policymakers and practitioners in the fields of health law and ethics and end-of-life care more generally, but will also be of wider interest to an international academic audience in the fields of law, ethics and health and social care research. This title is also available as open access on Cambridge Core.

The research of our scholars on the law concerning clinical care covers a wide range of issues, such as issues concerning medical negligence, medical decision-making on behalf of minors, advance medical directives and medical research fraud.

Clinical ethics and humanities is one of our other research areas. It is an interdisciplinary field that combines the study of medical ethics and the humanities (such as anthropology, philosophy, history, and art) to address ethical and humanistic issues in healthcare. It seeks to provide a nuanced understanding of complex ethical dilemmas that may arise in clinical settings, and to develop practical solutions that balance the needs and values of patients, families, and healthcare providers. Ongoing emerging disease threats and the development of novel technologies to tackle contemporary health issues may raise awareness of, or concerns about ethical implications and sociocultural challenges of healthcare delivery.

Our scholars, with a background in law, medicine, science, philosophy, history, anthropology, and bioethics actively engage with clinical ethics, humanities and law issues through their research and teaching commitments.
