Health Care and the Law is recognised as one of the leading texts setting out the basic principles of health care law in New Zealand.
Since 2010 when the 4th edition of this book was published, there have been a number of legislative changes in the area of health care law, including health and safety, the euthanasia debate, procedure and coronial services. The new edition brings every chapter up to date, including new case law examples to provide readers with a greater understanding of the practicalities of the law and how it has been applied and direction to further resources.
Now going into its 5th edition, Health Care and the Law focuses on the practical aspects of health law in New Zealand, from both professional and academic perspectives. Written by legal experts in nursing, midwifery, academia, legal practice and the judiciary, the focus is on presenting readers with an easy-to- understand, practical and uncomplicated account of health care law.
