Healthcare providers encounter complex problems in medical, business, and legal venues on a daily basis, and in an ever-evolving landscape. However, an incomplete understanding of how these three arenas intersect can undermine ability and confidence in handling the resulting medical and business decisions.

Physicians and the Law employs succinctly stated concepts to create a toolkit for healthcare providers to confidently tackle the everyday intersection of medicine, business, and law. This book will help all who read it to develop an in-depth understanding of how these three key issues overlap and to gain the insights to feel empowered to make improved decisions.

Also available in these eBook formats.
