Exploring the patterns in the rich tapestry of medical law, this text is the most up-to-date work of its kind. After an introduction to bio-ethical principles, Australian Medical Law discusses the interplay of different areas of law as they impact on medical practice. The text considers the impact of contract, crime and tort law. Particular attention is given to competency and the thorny issue of consent to treatment. Other areas canvassed include confidentiality, access to medical records, complaints and transplants. The latest case law is included, as well as commentary on the Civil Liability Act. Clearly expressed and accessible, this text is relevant to all students and practitioners involved in the burgeoning field of medical law.
