Synopsis

This books gives guidance for doctors and other health professionals who are involved in providing health care for children and young people.

The books sets out best practice guidance, and explains that children and young people should be allowed to participate in decisions about their health care to the extent they wish. It explains who can give consent to treatment on behalf of a person under 18 and when children and young people can seek health care and advice independently.

It also explores the issue of refusal of treatment; what parents are entitled to refuse on behalf of their young children, and what to do if young people refuse treatment.

A comprehensive summary of chapters provides quick reference for the key ethical and legal issues.
