Health Law in Australia is the first book to deal with health law on a comprehensive national basis. In a field of law that is becoming increasingly important, where the demand for expertise is rapidly expanding, Health Law in Australia examines the law in detail in all Australian jurisdictions.

By covering all the major areas in this diverse field of law, Health Law in Australia delivers increased understanding of the discipline as a whole. The book deals with the general principles of health law in detail, including chapters on:-

  • Medical Negligence
  • Children and Consent
  • and Confidentiality and Privacy
It then goes on to consider beginning-of-life and end-of-life issues, concluding with chapters on select emerging health law areas, such as biotechnology, mental health law and organ and tissue donation. The contributing authors include national leaders in the field, therefore exposing readers to the results of research already being conducted by specialists and creating a higher level of expertise that would not otherwise be possible across the wide range of topics. A logical, structured approach is adopted within each chapter to ensure consistency throughout the book.

Health Law in Australia has been written for those with a legal background and is essential reading for undergraduate law students, postgraduate law students, researchers and scholars in the disciplines of law, health and medicine, as well as legal practitioners, government departments and bodies in the health area, and private health providers.
