Health Law in Australia by White, Benjamin P., McDonald, Fiona, & Willmott, Lindy (Eds.) (2014) [Second Edition] is Australia’s leading text in this area and was the first book to deal with health law on a comprehensive national basis. In this important field that continues to give rise to challenges for society, the book takes a logical, structured approach to explain the breadth of this area of law across all Australian jurisdictions.
By covering all the major areas in this diverse field, Health Law in Australia enhances the understanding of the discipline as a whole. The book includes discussion of beginning-of-life and end-of-life issues, with a chapter by Cameron Stewart on voluntary euthanasia and assisted dying.
Health Law in Australia has been written for both legal and health audiences. It is essential reading for undergraduate and postgraduate students, researchers and scholars in the disciplines of law, health and medicine, as well as health and legal practitioners, private health providers, and government departments and bodies in the health area. The contributing authors are national leaders who are specialists in these areas of health law and who can share with readers the results of their research.
