Physician Law: Evolving Trends and Hot Topics
Select a format
This book represents the cutting edge of physician law. The publication emanates from the American Bar Association Health Law Section's 2018 Physicians Legal Issues Conference. The conference and this book have been produced in conjunction with the Chicago Medical Society and the American Medical Association, tailored to an audience including physicians, lawyers, healthcare administrators and other healthcare business people.
The book includes nine peer-reviewed chapters on core physician-centric legal topics:
1.Entrepreneurial Medicine (including fraud and abuse risk areas);
3.Medical Professional Liability;
6.Accountable Care Organizations;
7.Doctor’s Defense in Medical Staff Hearings and Appeals;
8.Physician Well-Being; and
9.Medicare and Medicaid Contractors.
Physicians will especially benefit from the content that addresses a broad range of non-clinical topics that are currently transforming American healthcare. The chapters target issues that are not typically covered in most medically oriented volumes but nonetheless are critically important in the practice of medicine. Physician Law: Evolving Trends & Hot Topics is an excellent reference for clinicians and professionals who want to stay abreast of current legal and regulatory issues impacting their practice.
