Summary "Health Law in Australia 3rd edition is Australia’s leading text in this area and was the first book to deal with health law on a comprehensive national basis. In this important field that continues to give rise to challenges for society, the book takes a logical, structured approach to explain the breadth of this area of law across all Australian jurisdictions.By covering all the major areas in this diverse field, Health Law in Australia 3rd edition enhances the understanding of the discipline as a whole. The book begins by situating health law in its wider context with chapters on medical ethics, human rights and how the health system as a whole is regulated. It then explores the general principles of health law, including chapters on “Negligence”, “Children and Consent to Medical Treatment”, and “Medical Confidentiality and Patient Privacy”. The book goes on to consider beginning-of-life and end-of-life issues, before concluding with chapters on emerging areas in health law, such as medical research, genetic technologies and biotechnology. The contributing authors are national leaders who are specialists in these areas of health law and who can share with readers the results of their research."--Back cover
