The first book to focus on medical and surgical malpractice with realistic, practical information, it provides explicit guidance on preventive documentation, the disgruntled patient, and dealing with requests for records, threats of litigation, and phone calls from lawyers.

Leading experts explore malpractice and medicolegal issues in all fields of primary care and in all specialities. They also cover risk management principles for residents, malpractice issues and concerns for medical students, and malpractice risk and risk reduction strategies for advanced practice nurses and physician assistants.
