Synopsis

Analyzing the level of claims for clinical negligence in the light of the most recent trends and discovering whether there is indeed a litigation crisis in healthcare, this book is a topical and compelling exploration of healthcare and doctor-patient relationships.











The author:























identifies and analyzes the growing pressures on doctors in modern society, placing their role in context

explores some of the myths surrounding media claims about malpractice

considers the practice of `defensive medicine' and the difference between defensive practices and sensible risk management

examines external pressures, such as political interference with clinical practice in the form of target-setting and what might be described as a culture of creeping privatization of healthcare.

















Covering the topics of medicine and the media and the causes of occupational stress among doctors, this volume is a must read for all students of medical law and medical ethics.
