Health Law and Medical Ethics


Health Law and Medical Ethics by James Allen

Conversational, relevant, and engaging, HEALTH LAW AND MEDICAL ETHICS, 1/e is today's most effective introduction to health law and medical ethics. The only book of its kind, it combines a visual, engaging, and modern design with scrupulous accuracy about the law, reflecting the author's experience as a legal professional. It addresses the most recent trends in law and ethics, treating both areas with equal depth and insight, and demonstrating their deep interconnections. Coverage includes: how the law works; responsibilities of healthcare professionals; medical records, insurance, torts, and negligence; ethical decision-making; the beginning and end of life; bioethics; the future of healthcare, issues associated with diversity, and much more. Pedagogical features include many case studies and case analyses, Legal Alert and Concept Application boxes, discussion questions, and a glossary.
