Medicine has always been intimately involved with crime and criminology, whether it is through explanations of criminal behaviour or the attempt to modify this behaviour through treatment. This book looks at the interaction between the criminal justice system and regulating health care practice. Covering a variety of disciplines, the books addresses regulatory controls and the regulation in health care of alternative health care methods, sexual misconduct in health care, unlawful killing and fraud.
