Clients in the health sector are subject to a dizzying array of statutes, regulations, rules and by-laws that govern their interactions with patients and patients’ families, as well as often confusing case law that regulates their conduct. Every day they are required to make decisions about ethical and other practice issues that could subject them to liability. They require knowledgeable, practical and up-to-date advice from seasoned practitioners to help guide them to sensible solutions to their problems.
