Medical Ethics, Law and Communication at a Glance presents a succinct overview of these key areas of the medical curriculum. This new title aims to provide a concise summary of the three core, interlinked topics essential to resolving ethical dilemmas in medicine and avoiding medico-legal action. Divided into two sections; the first examines the ethical and legal principles underpinning each medical topic; while the second focuses on communication skills and the importance of good communication. Medical Ethics, Law and Communication at a Glance offers an accessible introduction to the fundamentals of good medical practice, and will provide indispensable support for undergraduate medical students and nurses, as well as newly qualified healthcare professionals.

"Overall, this is a good overview. Although this book alone will not make the reader a complete doctor, it will be a good stepping stone toward that end. If readers are looking for an overview of communication skills in addition to medical ethics and law, this book is the only option because there are no books that cover all three topics." (Doody Enterprises 17/03/2017) "Medical Ethics, Law and Communication follows along the same lines as Medical School At A Glance, with Davey and co-editors providing a no-nonsense overview of how to avoid potential minefields in the profession...Medical Ethics features a well-honed narrative telling the reader what they need to know, opening doors into subjects that should naturally motivate further independent research. In sum, no prospective or practicing health care provider can afford to be without this resource." (The Electric Review, 23/03/2017)
