Legal questions relating to health care for the elderly have grown increasingly numerous and complex. While these issues have been dealt with extensively by researchers and professional specialists, the literature has grown so vast in the past decade that it is difficult to keep abreast of legal developments. This bibliography is designed to assist practicing health, human services, and legal professionals as well as researchers, teachers, and students in identifying and evaluating information sources that will provide essential guidance on the legal implications of health care for the elderly.
Organized in thirteen subject sections, the volume contains more than six-hundred annotated references dealing with institutional regulations and standards of care, disability determinations, decisionmaking for critically ill patients, involuntary commitment, advocacy services for the older health care consumer, and many other topics. Citations consist of books, book chapters, journal articles, and reports published from 1980 onwards. Entries are cross-referenced systematically, and author and subject indexes are provided. This important new reference will be an invaluable working tool for professionals and students who need to understand and deal with some of the most difficult issues in the field of modern health care.
