Courses - Advanced Healthcare Law HESA 6362   Advanced Healthcare Law
Over the last decade, there has been an unprecedented introduction of the rule of law into nearly every aspect of healthcare delivery in Canada by creating rights and responsibilities for all individuals and institutions (both public and private) involved in the administration of the healthcare system. The seminar builds on the foundational Healthcare Law (HESA 6360) course by offering a more in-depth examination of some of the topics that were surveyed in that course and exposing students to additional healthcare law topics, such as the regulation of biomedical research involving humans, medical error reporting, and legal responses to chronic disease. Students are encouraged to further develop their understanding of the rules and policies of the legal system and to critically evaluate their efficacy and legitimacy in the healthcare context. Instruction on legal research methodologies is provided since students are expected to prepare a research paper.
