Abstract from

Regulating Health Practitioner Professionalism

Ian Freckelton is a Barrister, Lawyer Member, Medical Practitioners Board of Victoria, Psychologists Registration Board of Victoria and Honorary Professor, La Trobe Law, Melbourne, Australia.

This volume of Law in Context grapples from a number of different perspectives with the concept of health practitioner regulation. It is a topic that is subject to diverse interpretations and to descriptions that vary substantially from country to country (see Alsopp and Jones, 2006).

The articles in this volume have been selected from critical thinkers on health practitioner regulation in Australia, New Zealand and Indo­nesia. They have been formulated so as to challenge and confront in respect of the social policy issues that drive this fast-changing area of legal practice and social policy reform.
