Overview

Problems in Health Care Law, Ninth Edition has been extensively updated and restructured to utilize the "problems" approach. Organized to highlight the general principles of health care law, the text seeks to state expressly the general principles of both the underlying conflicts between public policies and the legal solutions to those problems. To achieve this goal, the Ninth Edition's format has been revised to reflect the categories of health care law that remain most problematic. Each chapter reflects one of these categories while frequently asked questions serve as the headings to each section.
