As a critical examination of the pervasive tension existing between defensive medicine and good, ethical patient care, this book investigates the impact of legalities on medical treatment. Physicians today are apprehensive about the threat of malpractice suits. Kapp explores the extent to which this fear is justified. He examines where physicians get their ideas about what the law forbids and requires, how physicians' perceptions of the law and medicine affect medical care, and whether these behavioral manifestations benefit or hurt a physician's ability to practice ethically. Kapp then suggests ways medical professionals can resolve tension caused by conflicting demands and encourage more ethical care.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Kapp stays away from the abstract discussion of principles and the ponderous discussion of legal codes, couching his argument in reason and appealing to common sense. For busy professionals, it is a short and very accessible 175 pages and this reviewer recommends it highly as required reading for advanced practice and bedside nurses alike."-Nursing Ethics
"Kapp nicely demonstrates the tie between professional risk and clinical practices that give shift to patients' rights and preferences."-Health Affairs
