Description

"Medicine, Patients and the Law" is a leading book in its field, aimed at practitioners and students of both law and medicine, as well as the general reader. It examines the regulation of medical practice, the rights and duties of patients and their medical advisers, the provision of compensation for medical mishaps and the framework of rules governing those delicate issues of life and death where medicine, morals and the law overlap. The fourth edition of this highly acclaimed book is fully updated to cover recent changes in law and medical practice. Among other current issues, it addresses the radical reforms proposed by the Shipman Inquiry, the impact of change within the NHS, the Mental Capacity Act of 2005 and includes a new chapter on access to health care. Clear explanations of legal issues make this book accessible and absorbing.
