Dementia, Law and Ethics: A Practical Guide for Nurses and Other

Julian C. Hughes, Aileen Beatty, Charlotte Emmett

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Clinical dilemmas in dementia contexts are often not because the clinical facts are in doubt, but because the ethical and legal underpinnings are uncertain - which can cause worry and confusion. This practical book will help nurses, healthcare assistants and other practitioners to think through their responses clearly in the midst of these difficult
situations.

The chapters all stand alone, allowing the reader to dip quickly in and out of the book as required. They address complex issues such as abuse, behaviour that challenges, forced care, treatment withdrawal, and contain clinical case vignettes throughout.

This is essential reading to give practitioners the confidence that good legal and ethical decisions can be made in the same way as good clinical decisions.
