Product Description

Health Care Law & Ethics was one of the first casebooks to face the formidable task of providing adequate coverage of the multiple areas where law and medicine intersect.

This edition continues that tradition by being well-suited for use in a survey course in health care law or a more focused study of malpractice or bioethics:
Material is logically organized into three main parts:The Patient and the Provider, The Patient, the Provider, and the State, Institutions, Providers, and the State;
The crucial issues of quality, ethics, access, and cost are considered throughout the book;
Strong coverage of bioethics provides important contextual background for discussions of the right to die, reproductive rights, organ transplantion;
The authors address cutting-edge issues, such as genetics and managed care along with such standard topics as confidentiality, medical malpractice, public health law, and health care financing and regulation;
Clear author notes provide context and background information, and smooth the transitions between cases;
Helpful introduction supplies an overview of the health care system to help students navigate this complicated area;
New coverage of todays' most urgent issues: oversight of medical research, including genetic research and cloning, HMO liability, Patient Bill of Rights, and new privacy rules and bioterrorism;
Improved and expanded treatment of ERISA preemption;
Reorganized Part Three for greater clarity, in response to user feedback;
Major new cases, including Rush Prudential v. Moran and Pegram v. Herdich (regulation of managed care), Ferguson v. City of Charleston (reporting drug test results to law enforcement) J.B. v. M.B. (disposition of frozen embryos).
