  • Description

    Evidence: Its Meanings in Health Care and in Law examines the ways in which scientists, clinical practitioners, judges, legal scholars, and juries interpret and use evidence. The articles find that the concept and attributes of "evidence" depend on where one sits. They recognize the time-honored legal and medical science interpretation and operationalization of "evidence" while, at the same time, acknowledging that the health care system and the legal system would each benefit by sustained efforts of mutual education of practitioners in both fields.
