Health Care & the Law, now in its sixth edition, provides a detailed and clear examination of legal processes as they relate to health care professionals throughout Australia, with coverage of all Australian jurisdictions.

This sixth edition has been restructured to make it more accessible to the reader and it has also been updated to reflect the rapid pace of change in law as it relates to health care. The seven parts of the text focus on:


            the law, courts and legal processes


            patients' treatment and consent


            medical liability


            patient information and property


            the health professional


            public health


            crime, discrimination and rights

and it contains new material in separate chapters addressing:


            disciplinary processes and mandatory reporting


            open disclosure


            genetic testing and treatments

With detailed tables of contents, summarised case law, procedural checklists and guidelines, this illuminating, easy-to-read text is an essential resource for health care professionals, teachers and lecturers, students, practitioners and health administrators.
