The key focus of this edited text is on the legal and professional conflicts and issues that can arise from regulating health care quality. Doctors and nurses all increasingly face a number of dilemmas with regulating health quality issues such as increasing levels of complaints and litigation, scarcity of resources, under-staffing, professional discipline, clinical governance, clinical risk management etc. This book spells out and discusses these issues, taking an academic approach, though this will be tempered with a practical focus on issues.
This book is designed for doctors, nurses and all those studying health law and health policy on undergraduate and postgraduate courses, for which this is an increasingly significant topic. The book will also be of interest to legal professionals. Other potential markets include the professional legal market (barristers and solicitors who specialise in health law); and the following staff in health trusts: clinical governance leaders, risk and litigation managers; directors of health quality.
