Abstract

After 2000, specific legislation on civil liability and ethics of nurses and doctors was introduced, as well as specific acts. For nurses and the nursing profession, since 2001, the Code of Nursing Ethics (NCSD, Presidential Decree 216/2001) has been in force. In 2005, the current Code of Medical Ethics (KID, Law 3418/2005) was passed. Special Law 3305/2005 on the application of assisted reproduction methods was introduced to specify how the methods introduced in the Civil Code were applied as methods of generating kinship among persons under Law 2089/2002 (MAP). The chapter summarizes the main points regarding civil liability of medical and nursing activity with a special focus on oncological patients.
