ABOUT THIS BOOK
- A comprehensive analysis of legal and ethical issues related to paediatric patient and family centred care
- Gives a unique legal and ethical analysis of pediatric health care delivery models
- Discusses the practical application and implementation of health care delivery models
This book provides the reader with a theoretical and practical understanding
of two health care delivery models: the patient/child centred care and family-centred
care. Both are fundamental to caring for children in healthcare organizations.
The authors address their application in a variety of paediatric healthcare
contexts, as well as the ethical and legal issues they raise. Each model is
increasingly pursued as a vehicle for guiding the delivery of health care in
the best interests of children. Such models of health care delivery shape health
care policies, programs, facility design, resource allocation decisions and
day-to-day interactions among patients, families, physicians and other health
care professionals. To maximize the health and ethical benefits these models
offer, there must be shared understanding of what the models entail, as well
as the ethical and legal synergies and tensions they can create. This book is
a valuable resource for paediatricians, nurses, trainees, graduate students,
practitioners of ethics and health policy.
