This book will provide nurses, other registered health professionals, managers and patient groups with essential information about the laws which apply to death. Using straightforward language, it guides the reader through a complex area of law, and provides a helpful reference work for critical occasions in their working lives. It will introduce them to the basic principles that apply and the sources of law, so that they can add to their knowledge through further reading of books and websites. The book covers a wide range of topics from the details of how a body should be laid out and the different religious practices, to the laws relating to resuscitation, the coroner's court and intended changes following the Shipman Reports. Each chapter uses a scenario to illustrate the relevant laws so that they can be explained in a clear, practical, jargon-free way.
