With paramedics being newly registered on a national level, Paramedic Law and Regulation in Australia is a timely addition to the paramedic law and ethics field of knowledge. It provides a fresh approach to understanding and addressing legal and ethical issues in paramedicine and is unique in applying important legal principles to paramedicine, using practical and realistic problem-based scenarios. The contributing authors are lawyers, paramedics and academics who draw upon their expert knowledge to introduce complex legal concepts in a straightforward manner. By introducing law and ethics, considering registration obligations and exploring specific areas of law including confidentiality and negligence, the authors methodically examine the law in all Australian jurisdictions.

This text is essential for anyone looking to understand paramedicine from either a paramedic or a legal perspective. Whether you are an undergraduate student, postgraduate student, researcher, practising paramedic or in public or private practice, you will find Paramedic Law and Regulation in Australia to be an important and useful resource.
