Real-life examples and case studies help you apply the book's concepts. For easier reading, content is presented in short, concise chunks.

Summaries at the end of every chapter reinforce essential concepts. Study Questions test your knowledge of the material. Recommended Readings list sources for further research. What If? boxes present ethical dilemmas and help you apply concepts from the book to real-life examples. Updated Case Studies discuss the issues faced in a variety of healthcare settings. A revised Imaging Liability and Litigation chapter describes how society holds healthcare workers accountable in the workplace. Important HIPAA information includes the latest privacy guidelines along with ethical and legal implications.
