Have you ever
- Wondered how to deal with a family that repeatedly fails to keep clinic appointments?
- Disagreed with colleagues over a proposed course of treatment for a child?
- Considered ways to 'bump' a child on a waiting to speed up their assessment?
These are a few of the scenarios faced by clinicians in neurodisability on a daily basis. Ethics in Child Health explores the ethical dimensions of these issues that have either been ignored or not recognised. Each chapter is built around a scenario familiar to clinicians and is discussed with respect to how ethical principles can be utilised to inform decision-making. Useful ‘Themes for Discussion’ are provided at the end of each chapter to help professionals and students develop practical ethical thinking. Ethics in Child Health offers a set of principles that clinicians, social workers and policy-makers can utilise in their respective spheres of influence.
