I for one am content to simply say that this is one of the finest legal text books I have ever read...Just as Archbold became the seminal volume for practitioners in the area of criminal law, John Healy s book will, in my view, enjoy a similar if not higher status amongst those practising in the field of medical law. The Hon Mr justice Nicolas Kearns in the Foreword. With the escalation of medical negligence cases in Ireland, a need has arisen for a publication which provides a thorough and comprehensive reference to this area of law. Medical Malpractice Law provides the reader with a detailed and developed account of the law of medical negligence and consent. It is sure to become a must-have for legal professionals. It is also accessible to medical practitioners, including doctors, consultants and general practitioners. Contents: Evolution of medicine and medical law; The principles of civil liability; Negligence in diagnosis and treatment: Duties of care; Negligence in diagnosis and treatment: Assessment of the due standard of care; Consent and disclosure; Proof and causation; Actions for wrongful conception, Birth, or life; Assessment of damages; Practice and procedure; Digest of Irish medical negligence decisions. John Healy is a practising barrister.
