About the Book

Healthcare, a field dedicated to the well-being of individuals and communities, operates within an intricate web of legal principles.

This book is your compass, guiding you through the labyrinth of legal fundamentals that shape the landscape of healthcare.

About the Contributors


Dr. Jackman isn’t just a wordsmith; she is a passionate advocate for education and a champion for student success. She believes that every student, regardless of background, deserves the chance to thrive. This conviction fuels their work, both within the classroom and beyond the pages of her books. Dr. Jackman’s dedication to student success isn’t just theoretical. She boasts a remarkable track record, spearheading initiatives that empower young minds. Her commitment has created tangible results, including the creation of several Open Educational Resources (OER). Her impact extends far beyond individual programs. In her words,

Having dedicated my career to healthcare and academia, I am deeply committed to preparing the next generation of healthcare leaders. I have taught these concepts since 2017 and found that many books either do not focus enough on healthcare as it relates to the legal realm or are too in depth for a introductory course. I wanted to combine the information I have found to support the concepts taught in my course into something that was easy to read and more palatable to novice learners. Every student deserves the opportunity to succeed, and I am committed to creating an environment where all students can thrive. Therefore, I wanted to design a textbook at no cost that would complement any undergraduate law course for healthcare administration and health science students. I encourage faculty users to explore the topics and concepts that may help teach the fundamentals of healthcare law. Feel free to tailor this material to your needs in the learning environment.
