All professionals now require a working knowledge of the law relating to their subject. This text offers practical guidance specifically for the doctor, nurse, manager or lawyer faced with legal difficulties arising out of a medical emergency. The first part of the book offers guidance, with examples, for those ""on the spot"" in difficult situations, whilst the second part consists of a condensed but authoritative summary of the various legal topics comprising emergency medicine law. Written in plain language, it makes several complex and difficult areas of the law accessible to the legal layman, yet it does not avoid more complicated issues and is fully referenced so that the truth of each statement can be validated.
