Edited by Steven M. Donn, MD, FAAP and Gary N. McAbee, DO, JD, FAA

Medical liability continues to be a fact of life for pediatricians. One third of pediatricians will be sued for medical liability over the course of their careers. Pediatricians need to be aware of this fact and take steps to reduce the likelihood of being sued. Medicolegal Issues in Pediatrics, offers a wide range of medicolegal topics that affect the practice of pediatrics from residency through retirement. It provides pediatricians with detailed information on common pediatric malpractice claims and specific risk management strategies to reduce the threat of being sued and make it easier to defend a claim.
