This book continues to provide an overview of the inter-relationship between ethical medical practice and the law. Thus, the emphasis is on those aspects of medical practice that are governed, to a large extent, by the moral law. However, medical law, as a whole, is still a developing discipline which is being increasingly shaped by the courts and there is extensive coverage of seminal and recent judicial decisions, with particular attention being given to those which define the limits of professional freedom in the light of the increasing importance attached to personal autonomy. The book incorporates a strong element of comparative medical law, having a particular interest in the shift of influence from other Anglophone jurisdictions to those in Europe. The text is directed in the main to students and practitioners of law, but the overarching importance attached to ethical principles broadens its appeal to all those involved in the control and delivery of modern healthcare.

Law and Ethics in Nursing and Healthcare

An Introduction

Author: Graham Avery

Publisher: SAGE

ISBN: 1446289508

Category: Medical

Page: 352

An invaluable support for learning throughout all levels of training, this book introduces the key legal, ethical and professional principles guiding nursing and healthcare practice. Illustrating clearly how legal and ethical principles interplay and inform professional development, Graham Avery focuses directly on the vital areas - such as negligence, consent, confidentiality, and professional conduct - that healthcare students and practitioners need to understand in order to practice safely and ethically. Adopting a very practical, accessible approach, central themes and arguments are highlighted with real and fictional case studies which will help readers connect the often 'dry' topics of law and ethics to their own work with patients. End-of-chapter exercises also serve to encourage critical thinking and to challenge opinion. With further chapters covering more specific areas such as mental health law, end-of-life decisions, and children's law, this will be an indispensable resource for all nursing and healthcare students and practitioners.
