Medical Law and Ethics is your plain-language guide to the essentials of the laws and the ethical demands of healthcare professions. Clear and readable, it will help you identify the ethical norms you would need to adhere to in your chosen field. Real legal cases and stimulating exercises challenge learners to envision their responses to legal and ethical dilemmas in healthcare today.
The 6th Edition covers issues of increasing concern in hospitals and medical offices, including the opioid crisis in the US, electronic recordkeeping, and rules around the maintenance and sharing of personal health records. You'll also get insights into the needs of the elderly, as well as visually and hearing-impaired populations.
