The translation of medical research into health care practice can present a range of ethical challenges. If ethical and social issues are not identified, analysed and appropriately addressed as research progresses, they have the potential to block the successful completion of the research and its translation into health benefits. In a time of rapid scientific advances and emerging technologies in healthcare, the exploration of the relationships between law, ethics and practice can identify how new technologies may be accommodated within existing legal frameworks and whether these frameworks need to change.
