Winner of the 2005 Society of Authors Minty Prize for the best medico-legal book, sponsored by the Medico-Legal Society.

Devised especially for lawyers, rather than clinicians, this book explains medical concepts and considers medical risks associated with current practice.

Written by recognised experts in each field who have extensive experience of advising lawyers and the courts, this book is full of information, and based on the popular Medicine for Lawyers course of lectures held at the Royal Society of Medicine.

This book is recommended as especially relevant to lawyers specializing in clinical
negligence, medical law, and personal injury.

Areas covered include:
Anatomy * Intensive Care * Emergency Medicine * Anaesthesia * Surgery * Orthopaedics * Paediatrics * Obstetrics & Midwifery * Gynaecology * Cardiology * Psychiatry * Urology * Radiotherapy & Oncology * Plastic Surgery * Risk Management in General Practice
