Do you know the significant legal risks that you face every day as a medical practitioner? Have you ever considered how you may be able to minimize those medical-legal risks? Preventative Legal Care Print Book and eBook w

Do you spend hours, or even days, agonizing over each and every tiny medical risk that your patients face, trying to properly identify, evaluate, and handle those risks in a prospective fashion, while spending almost no time thinking about your own practice, trying to identify and manage the medical-legal risks that you face as a practitioner?

After realizing that this is, in fact, a big problem, author Kevin Yankowsky decided to do something to help. Kevin is the author of the brand new book, Preventative Legal Care: A Practitioner’s Guide to Medical-Legal Fitness.

The book is backed by Kevin’s 20+ years of medical-legal defense experience, and he covers the most important topics that you need to understand about mitigating your risk while providing compassionate, appropriate medical care to your patients.

This book is for ALL medical practitioners - from nurses to doctors, to acute care hospitals, pharmaceutical companies, long-term care facilities, and others.


This easy to read book provides practical, real-world solutions to effectively manage and diminish your medical-legal risks. As a practicing healthcare attorney, Kevin W. Yankowsky has represented individual clinicians and healthcare institutions involved in legal disputes of all shapes and sizes. In his over 20 years as a practicing attorney, he has seen providers and institutions pour money into resolving legal disputes that potentially could have been avoided. Institutions focus too much of their time, effort, and financial resources on the costs of litigation defense and the expenses of settlement rather than investing time and resources on medical-legal prevention. In Preventative Legal Care: A Practitioner’s Guide to Medical-Legal Fitness, Yankowsky outlines some medical-legal risk factors unassociated with clinical care and supplies practical real-world solutions to recognize, control and minimize, if not eliminate, those factors.
