A legal reference for practicing physicians is a necessary adjunct to their professional practice library in today's highly regulated and li tigious world. Medical Care Law was written to help practicing physici ans avoid legal conflicts, and to prevent legal problems rather than t reat them. Written with the practicing physician in mind, this book is also valuable to a variety of health professionals, including physici an executives, medical directors, nurse administrators, advanced pract ice nurses, case managers, risk managers, legal nurse consultants, hea lth care administrators, public health professionals, and attorneys. I n addition to the "traditional' legal issues affecting medical practit ioners, Medical Care Law addresses the legal pitfalls in today's volat ile health care landscape, including managed care, health care fraud a nd abuse, compliance plans, and working with non-physician providers.
