After an introduction to bio-ethical principles, Australian Medical Law discusses the interplay of different areas of law as they impact on medical practice. The text considers the impact of contract, crime and tort law. Particular attention is given to competency and the thorny issue of consent to treatment. Other areas canvassed include confidentiality, access to medical records, complaints and transplants. The latest case law is included, as well as commentary on the Civil Liability Act.
