Consent to Treatment is the single-volume complete library of patient consent topics and solutions. Written by an experienced health care attorney and risk manager, this leading resource helps you formulate your own effective, voluntary and lawful policies and procedures, so that you can successfully limit liability and avoid litigation.
Described as the bible on consent by health lawyers and risk managers, it was recently reviewed by the Journal of the American Medical Association and has been cited in over 90 law review articles and 20 court decisions, including a landmark ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court regarding end-of-life choice-making.
This handbook helps you navigate both common and complex topics to remain compliant with state and federal laws. The Fourth Edition has been updated to include information on the new algorithm on therapeutic consent process. It also includes important developments on HIV testing, human research, minors and organ donation and details the new CMS interpretive guidelines on informed consent
