Tom Christoffel pens “an excellent overview of the law for non-lawyers in the health care field” (George Annas, Professor of Law and Medicine at Boston University Schools of Medicine and Public Health).

Health and the Law provides health professionals and students with a balanced, comprehensive, highly readable survey of the legal concepts and controversies affecting them today.

Avoiding unnecessarily technical language, it lucidly explains basic legal principles and theories, examines current issues and their implications, and probes future legal trends. Each chapter offers a complete, self-contained introduction to a medicolegal topic—including invaluable endnotes that cite references, clarify perspectives, and suggest further readings.
