First published more than 20 years ago, Rozovsky's Consent to Treatment was quickly recognized as a major contribution to the field of health law and bioethics. It provided a detailed, accessible, comprehensive guide to the law of consent to medical treatment, along with its exceptions or qualifications. By its expanded second and third editions, it had become a relevant classic. It is often considered the definitive guidebook for practitioners working at the intersection of medicine and law on issues related to informed consent and has been cited in many court decisions, including those of the US Supreme Court. This, its fourth edition, continues the success of previous editions and adds material on pressing medical-legal topics of recent concern, particularly effective communication and consent.
