New “Nutshell” in Health Care Law

Thursday, March 5, 2020

West Academic’s popular Nutshell Series has long provided readers with a basic and accessible understanding of topics across the field of law. West recently published the 4th edition of Dr. David Orentlicher’s co-authored nutshell, “Health Care Law and Ethics.”

As scientific advances have transformed health care, they also have raised critical concerns about access, cost, and the rights of patients to decide matters of life and death. The nutshell considers how the law responds to the pressing public policy issues raised by innovations in medicine. Topics include health insurance reform, health care finance and delivery structures, treatment relationships, reproductive and genetic decisions, organ transplantation, and health care at the end of life.
