Practicing Medicine in Difficult Times: Protecting Physicians From Malpractice Litigation

JAMA. 2009;302(19):2158. doi:10.1001/jama.2009.1697

Practicing Medicine in Difficult Times provides a competent if generic overview of the myriad techniques available to physicians to assist in reducing the chances of incurring a medical malpractice claim. Because most of the chapters are coauthored by an attorney or physician, a degree of legal and medical proficiency infuses portions of the narrative with a practical, authentic methodology. Overall, the book lacks a cohesive theme, instead opting for a shotgun approach that leaves the reader without an understanding of the real reasons patients file medical malpractice claims.
