The Law of Acute Care Medicine, Print and ProView eBook

Availability: Partial Stock

The treatment of acutely deteriorating patients is among the greatest medical, legal, and ethical challenges of modern medicine. Decisions that need to be made can be some of the most difficult ones for front-line clinicians and many of these decisions, once made, cannot be reversed.

The legal issues that arise have broad implications for society’s access to and use of healthcare services. The Law of Acute Care Medicine focuses on the needs of the acute care professional and those providing legal advice to them. Using a practical approach, this book addresses the complex topics that all healthcare and legal professionals working in acute care settings need to understand.

It includes answers to frequently asked questions and provides clinical tools to improve practice. Case-based discussions clarify how the law is applied in medical practice and can be used as teaching tools for both healthcare and legal professionals, whether as independent learners or in classroom settings.

The medico-legal topics examined in this publication include:

  • Application of standard of care
  • Consent and capacity
  • Confidentiality and privacy
  • End of life, withdrawal of life support, CPR
  • Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD)
