About this Unit
In 2014, this unit replaced by 200856 - Medical Law. The relationship between the provider of health services and the patient has, in recent times, become more complex and provides a significant field for litigation, reform and legal scholarship. Advances in medical science have yielded increasingly complex questions concerning patient's rights, obligations of health care providers and the extent to which the State should intervene in that relationship. This unit aims to provide knowledge and understanding of core practical issues in Australian medical litigation; together with an overview of some cutting edge legal and policy issues that arise in medical litigation.
