About the Project

Sushruta in collaboration with R.U.C.E. (Research Unit of Clinicase Essen) is working on a project dealing with Misconduct and Negligence with Patients by Medical Practitioners in India. The ongoing research project will include the doctrinal study and analysis of primary and secondary sources of information, along with a Narrative literature review.

The project aims to strike a balance of rights between patients and the medical fraternity, by providing a broader perspective to the problem. The frequent attacks on the medical practitioners discredit as well as discourage the efforts made on behalf of the medical fraternity.

Regarding the same, Sushruta has already compiled a report, but this second phase of the project aims to balance it by supplementary analysis of data which becomes the root cause of such violence that is misconduct and negligence by medical practitioners.
