A Study for Assessment of Perception and Attitude of Medical Students about Medical Ethics, Consumer Protection Act (CPA) and its Influence on Violence against Doctors
Keywords:violence, influence, unethical, redressal, CPA.
Medical Profession was included under The Consumer Protection Act (CPA) in 1986 to provide a forum to
safeguard the rights of the customers and establish guidelines for the speedy redressal of their grievances
against unethical medical practices. This by far has been the most crucial legislations introduced in the
framework of health professionals which over the years seems to have propelled them to practice in a guarded
manner. In recent times this also seems to be flanked by a spurt in Violence against the Doctors enormously.
It is thereby imperative for all medical professionals to not only have a comprehensive knowledge of ethics
and laws related to health care and medicolegal issues but also its implications in their profession. In this
very light the current study was conducted as an attempt to assess the perception of undergraduate medical
students towards medical ethics, CPA and its influence on Violence against Doctors.
