This abridged edition uses the organization and methods that health law teachers and students have found so helpful over the last eight editions of the casebook. This book is designed specifically for survey courses in health law that aim at introducing students to the full range of health law issues in a single survey course. As with the full casebook, this abridged version includes chapters covering health care quality, access, equity, organization, finance, and bioethics, but some sections and chapters of the full casebook are deleted and note material is less comprehensive. This abridged version is well suited for health law courses taught in law schools with a single health law course and for courses taught in health administration, public health, and medical and other health professions programs. The book offers new cases, statutory materials, and classroom-tested problems, along with succinct and sharpened notes, comments, charts, and other teaching materials. It is fully up-to-date as of mid-2021, including the many issues raised by the COVID-19 pandemic.
