The Australian Medico-Legal Handbook provides an easily understood reference guide to legal and ethical issues encountered in daily medical practice. It also covers the laws in all Australian jurisdictions, answering the most commonly asked questions in clinical practice - "What if I get sued?", "What do I do if someone refuses treatment?", "What deaths do I refer to the Coroner?", "Who can decide about a child's treatment?", "What if I make a mistake?"
