Discussion of the halachic and ethical duties of a doctor regarding: Speaking up when individuals or rabbis are not following mainstream medical advice, and Advising a rabbi on issues where the medical data is uncertain, and Balancing different risks in decision-making. Meant for medical professionals and laypeople. Certainly not an attempt at psak!
