In Why Patients Sue Doctors 2e the authors draw on their wide-ranging, collective experience in over 1000 real-life medicolegal cases to explore why and how doctors make mistakes. By analysing and discussing the situations and behaviours that lead to complaints by patients and their families, this book provides clear and practical direction for practitioners to improve clinical care and avoid litigation. Written in a concise and engaging narrative writing style by editors Duncan Graham, Bernard Kelly and David Richards, readers will obtain a broad understanding of the origins, workings and outcomes of medicolegal cases and will be equipped with practical strategies to improve clinical care and avoid common pitfalls in practice. The text also introduces important legal concepts in an approachable manner appropriate for those working in medicine.
