Law and Ethics in Children's Nursing is an important and practical guide on the legal and ethical spects of child healthcare that enables nurses to understand the legal and ethical principles that underpin everyday nursing practice. It explores the concept of childhood and children's rights, the extent to which their rights are upheld in a variety of settings, and the relationship between law and ethics and how they interact in resolving problems and dilemmas that commonly arise in practice. With case studies, learning outcomes and scenarios throughout, Law and Ethics in Children's Nursing places the care and treatment of children in a legal and ethical framework, and explores the way in which legal and ethical aspects of children's nursing differ from those of adults. It explores general principles such as autonomy and consent, confidentiality, accountability and negligence. It then goes on to look at specialist areas such as abortion, sterilisation, research, mental health, organ donation, child protection and death.
Considering issues in modern health law, this volume is divided into three parts, the first outlines the legal system and court structure; the second looks at issues of professional practice such as malpractice law, professional accountability, consent and confidentiality; the third focuses on specialist areas, including liability for pre-birth events, assisted reproduction, mental health, treatment of the dying child, research and child protection.
This is a short textbook of ethics and law aimed primarily at medical students. The book is in two sections. The first considers general aspects of ethics (in the context of medicine); the second section covers the topics identified in the 'consensus agreement' (consent, confidentiality, genetics, reproductive medicine, children, mental health, end of life, resource allocation, research, and disease, disability and human enhancement). The content of medical law is not intended to be comprehensive and relates very much to the ethical issues.
