Overview

This text focuses on the two areas of modern health care law: The legal and financial structure of health care, and bioethics. The increasing importance of both subjects is due in part to the incredible advances in medical technology. These advances have increased treatment options and thus costs, and generated many additional ethical problems, such as should a particular patient's life be extended by kidney dialysis or open heart surgery. The text provides the scope and highlights you need to excel in understanding this field. This will enable you to answer exam questions more quickly and accurately, and enhance your skills as an attorney.

Disc. insurance coverage, regulatory reform, im- pact on treatment relationships, health care delivery issues
