How can medical law and ethics take forward the issue of children's empowerment and protection? What are the key factors in considering the balance between protecting the welfare of the young and allowing them rights to autonomy? The Child as Vulnerable Patient investigates the role that a human rights approach can play in establishing the parameters of autonomy and discusses the opportunities presented in the Human Rights Act, the European Convention on the Rights of the Child and new policy initiatives in the NHS. A valuable addition to existing literature in this area, this volume will be of interest to lawyers, health professionals and students of medical law.

Is it lawful for a doctor to give a patient life-shortening pain relief? Can treatment be lawfully provided to a child under 16 on the basis of her consent alone? Is it lawful to remove food and water provided by tube to a patient in a vegetative state? Is a woman’s refusal of a caesarean section recommended for the benefit of the fetus legally decisive? These questions were central to the four focal cases revisited in this book. This book revisits nine landmark cases. For each, a new leading judgment is attributed to an imagined judge, Athena, who operates within the constraints of the legal system of England and Wales. Her judgments accord with an innovative legal theory, referred to as ‘modified law as integrity’, and are linked as a line of precedent. The result is a re-spinning of extant judicial threads into a web of legal principles with a greater claim to coherence and defensibility than those in the original cases. The book will be of great interest to scholars and students of medical law, criminal law, bioethics, legal theory and moral philosophy.

This book brings together a wide cross-section of the author's work in the field of medical law and ethics. Many of the articles have appeared previously in journals, but all are updated. Some are published here for the first time. Professor Kennedy, a former Reith Lecturer and a well-known scholar and broadcaster, writes not only authoritatively and informatively about the subject, but often in a way that is provocative, controversial, and amusing. It is a collection that will interest the lawyer with medico-legal interests, and the doctor who wants to know more about the rights, duties, and liabilities of his profession, the student of law or medicine, and the layperson who follows developments in this scientifically complex and morally contentious area of law.

Author Pranee Liamputtong explores qualitative methods using examples, drawn from around the world, and from the wide variety of contexts that might count as ‘researching the vulnerable’. Numerous salient points for the conduct of research within vulnerable groups of people, including ethical and moral issues, are considered, and discussed in the context of sensitive and innovative research methods.

The third edition of Ethics and Law for Australian Nurses develops an innovative practical framework for understanding the ethical and legal dimensions of nursing practice in Australia. Taking a 'relational' approach to practice, the text foregrounds the concepts of personhood, vulnerability and the nurse-patient relationship as the source of a nurse's moral and legal obligations. This approach is central to the book's discussion of key ethical and legal concepts throughout the text including consent and autonomy, negligence and liability, confidentiality and trust, and culturally safe practice. This edition has been thoroughly revised to include the latest research and methods, updated legislation and links to professional documentation, along with a new chapter on aged care. Student learning is supported by case studies, legal case extracts and learning exercises. A new instructor companion website features a curated suite of multimedia resources and extension questions.
