You can’t get there from here: A case comment on Arndt v. Smith

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • [I]t is time the Supreme Court of Canada reconsidered the question of causation in those medical malpractice cases where the negligence alleged consists of a failure to make all reasonable disclosure necessary to an informed decision by the patient on a course of treatment ... the rule in Reibl v. Hughes is inadequate to the point where injustice can surely result from its application. That is particularly so in cases such as this, where any treatment decision involves a delicate balancing of overlapping personal, ethical, and medical considerations which can lead to more than one \"reasonable\" choice.
