The term “Medicolegal” incorporates the basics of two professions, that is, Medicine and Law. With the change in medicosocial dynamics, cases against doctors are witnessing a phenomenal rise; constant upgradation of the practicing doctor vis-á-vis the fast changing laws of the country. Each branch of medicine has its own medicolegal issues. This book comprehensively deals with medicolegal issues in most of the vulnerable branches together. An effort has been made to include the information related to almost all the branches in allopathic medical science and to create a perfect blend of clinical practice and various laws applicable to its varied aspects. It covers major issues which a doctor is likely to face during his/her professional career with case laws and important Supreme Court judgments. A section on The Acts and certain important tips in the form of algorithms for Safe Practice while managing the patient have been added, which would help doctors to follow uniform standards, which in turn will help in better patient care.
