Law and Ethics in Children's Nursing is an accessible and practical guide on the legal and ethical aspects of child health care that will enable nurses to understand the key principles that underpin everyday nursing practice, and help them understand the legal and ethical implications of their actions. It explores the concept of childhood and children's rights and the extent

to which their rights are upheld in a variety of settings and evaluates 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 differs from those of adults.
