Introduction to Health Law in Canada provides insights into a wide array of legal issues that those working in health care services, administration, and health policy will encounter throughout their careers. Because those that need an understanding of health law do not always have a legal background, this text has been written in an accessible manner and includes explanations of legal concepts and terms.

This text addresses topics that can arise during a professional’s day-to-day duties, as well as broader systemic issues including medical assistance in dying, liability for patient injuries, complaints against health professionals, and regulation of health products (e.g. cannabis). This comprehensive coverage fills crucial gaps in existing health law literature and gives an accurate representation of the changing landscape of health care for an introductory audience.

Given the rapid pace at which health technology develops, this new text is a must-have resource for those seeking a complete overview of various health law issues.

  • Insights from expert contributors: Tess Sheldon, Lisa Feldstein, Jacob Shelley
  • Case study boxes
  • Discussion questions
  • Glossary of defined terms
  • Content can be applied in various types of courses (e.g. bioethics, gender studies)
