Synopsis:

This bestseller presents a wealth of timely information on the legal and ethical principles in healthcare. Noted for its straightforward style in which it acquaints readers with essential information, the book examines topics such as the patient/physician relationship, professional liability, medical malpractice prevention, the medical record, confidentiality, bioethical issues, and HIPAA. Completely revised in a new 3rd edition, this overview of medical law and ethics is written in straightforward language for non-lawyer healthcare professionals. It is designed to help them better understand their ethical obligation to themselves, their patients, and their employer. Features of the new edition include: full-color images illustrate concepts and provide a dynamic reader experience; integrated case studies illustrate real-world examples of legal issues and principles in actual medical settings; and actual legal citations are highlighted throughout the text to assist with in-depth research.
