  • Paperback
U.S. Health Law and Policy, 2001: A Guide to the Current Literature is the definitive reference that summarizes legal developments and citations in sixteen areas of health law matters. Comprehensive and up-to-date, this edition includes six hundred new citations and contains information on a wide variety of timely subjects including genetics, managed care, integrated delivery systems, institutional liability, professional regulation, and antitrust. In addition, U.S. Health Law and Policy, 2001 has been reorganized to be more accessible and reader-friendly and includes a greatly expanded directory of the most relevant health care web sites. Praise for the Previous Edition "This book is a stunning achievement. The author undertakes the monumental task of collecting, organizing, and annotating the burgeoning literature on health care law and policy. The result is an enormously valuable resource, one that every health care lawyer, administrator, academic, and policy analyst should have immediately at hand." —Mark A. Hall, professor of law and public health, Wake Forest University "A must-purchase for anyone researching the vast spectrum of health care legal information. This is an excellent and thorough guide to the rapidly growing literature in this field. Researchers will particularly value the insightful and comprehensive annotations to books, articles, and electronic sources." —Pauline M. Aranas, assistant dean for library and information technology, the Alyne Queener Massey Law Library and associate professor of law, Vanderbilt University "The information age requires access to and organization of information, as much as it requires the creation of the information itself. The fieldof health care law is no exception. This book is an invaluable resource in providing that organization and access to a growing body of information that has heretofore been poorly organized and difficult to access. It provides a critical research tool to meet the challenge of understanding the literature regarding health care law and policy." —Keith M. Korenchuk, attorney, Davis Wright Tremaine LLP The Author Donald H. Caldwell Jr. is an attorney in the private practice of corporate law in Charlotte, North Carolina. He is a member of the American Health Lawyers Association and the North Carolina Society of Health Care Attorneys and is the author of U.S. Health Law and Policy 1999 (An AHA Press/Jossey-Bass Publication, 1998).
