520    On any given day in the emergency department, the chance 
       of confronting a medical-legal dilemma is significant. 
       Emergency medicine and critical care practitioners may 
       have to deal with malpractice claims, informed consent, 
       protection of minors, resuscitation, operational issues 
       and legal compliance requirements frequently. Substantial 
       knowledge of the law as it pertains to their emergency 
       care and acute care practice is essential. Legal Issues in
       Emergency Medicine is an invaluable resource for medical 
       practitioners, legal practitioners and administrators in 
       practice and in training. The book covers key topics that 
       have direct relevance to day to day acute patient care 
       practice. Each topic includes a clinical vignette, 
       followed by a review of the legal controversy, current 
       medical scientific evidence, case law and preventative 
       solutions to the dilemma. This approach allows 
       practitioner exposure to a wide variety of medical-legal 
       problems, allowing a pre-emptive, informed approach to 
       problem solving.
