Eighteen papers from a symposium held in September 1978. About half are concerned with anesthetic and surgical events but many of the remaining papers are pertinent to similar problems in internal medicine, notably that on ethical questions on the responsibility for complications in care (Wegelius and Kosonen) and the thorough discussion of the doctor-patient relationship (FitzGerald). Questions of governmental and insurance responsibilities for compensation for unexpected complications are discussed at length.
