Introduction to Health Law in Canada
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.

This text addresses topics that arise in the provision of health care services, including medical assistance in dying, liability for patient injuries, and complaints against health providers. It also explores broader systemic issues, such as the regulation of health products (e.g., cannabis), public health law, and the intersection of law and Indigenous health.
Given the rapidly changing landscape of health law, this text fills crucial gaps in existing literature and comprehensively covers crucial issues for an introductory audience.
