    Health Law and Ethics explores the intersection of healthcare, law, and ethics. It provides a foundation for understanding the legal system, medical malpractice, reproductive law, informed consent law, employment law, healthcare fraud law, end-of-life decision-making, contract law, and major ethical theories and principles. The integrated nature of the book enhances active learning through case studies, video, quizzes, flashcards, and news articles in every chapter.

    This electronic book was created to provide a clear, organized, and easy-to-read survey of major topics in healthcare law and ethics. The clear, organized structure and plentiful case studies help students better understand the hierarchy of laws, the relationship between federal and state laws, how the law changes, and who makes laws.

    Key topics covered include ethical theories and principles, the U.S. legal structure, making and interpreting law, intentional torts, corporate liability, civil and criminal procedure, information privacy, and more. The text provides foundational knowledge upon which students can build to better understand healthcare, law, and ethics.

    Health Law and Ethics is an exemplary resource for undergraduate courses in the fields of healthcare administration, healthcare services, clinical science, and legal studies.
