Winner of the 2005 Society of Authors Minty Prize for the best medico-legal book, sponsored by the Medico-Legal Society.

Devised especially for lawyers, rather than clinicians, this book explains medical concepts and considers medical risks associated with current practice.

Written by recognised experts in each field who have extensive experience of advising lawyers and the courts, this book is full of information, and based on the popular Medicine for Lawyers course of lectures held at the Royal Society of Medicine.

This book is recommended as especially relevant to lawyers specializing in clinical
negligence, medical law, and personal injury.

Areas covered include:
Anatomy * Intensive Care * Emergency Medicine * Anaesthesia * Surgery * Orthopaedics * Paediatrics * Obstetrics & Midwifery * Gynaecology * Cardiology * Psychiatry * Urology * Radiotherapy & Oncology * Plastic Surgery * Risk Management in General Practice

Review:

Ideally, this book could be a welcome addition to both law and medical schools. The contributors and editors are highly credible.... Truly a terrific primer for the practicing or newly minted lawyer. Well written, easy to follow, and a solid addition to the field. 4 Stars
Doody's Review Service, USA

... the editors have drawn on the experience of specialty authors who have extensive experience of appearing as expert witnesses, and who have a track record of providing sound advice regarding standards of care within their field... The general medical reader can gain a considerable amount of detail about clinical risks from this text, and I would recommend it to junior doctors in their Foundation training, in order to prepare them for effective clinical practice, whichever field they eventually move into.
For £25 this is an exceptionally reasonable book, and I wholeheartedly recommend it to medics and law students/ legal practitioners alike.

A valuable basis for non-medics in a wide range of fields... it would surely be valuable to many legal practitioners, whose work is in medico-legal fields. Also, its utility would extend to academics not trained in medicine who seek a clearer knowledge in order to broaden the contextual foundation of their work...For lawyers, it adds to...digestible descriptions of what medical practitioners should do when presented with difficult situations, some of the practical difficulties that legal practitioners may fail fully to appreciate and rebuttals to some of the misconceptions commonly held by non-medics.

Synopsis:

Aimed at lawyers rather than clinicians, this is a consideration of the medical risks associated with current practice for a number of speciality fields. Each chapter is written by an expert in an area of medicine or surgery who has experience of advising lawyers and the courts. The information should be especially relevant to lawyers specialising in clinical negligence and other aspects of medical law, and may also be useful to lawyers with a primary interest in personal injury. The volume is based on the "Medicine for Lawyers" course held at the Royal Society of Medicine.
