This account of the lead-up to the 2010 trial of Jayant Patel — dubbed “Dr Death” by the media — is excellent, which is not surprising considering Professors Dunbar and Reddy’s background in health services implementation research at Deakin University, Victoria. Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for the authors’ coverage of the real impact of the Patel case on health regulation in Australia.
