It aims to make medical practice safe, ethical, reassuring and hassle-free by discussing various legal issues related to medical practice.
This book is targeted at practising doctors for tension-free and litigation-free medical practice. It also provides much-needed relevant medical knowledge to lawyers and those involved in administration of justice.
