The BN Health Forum: Big Ideas for Health Professionals is back again to tackle health from a different perspective.
Providing healthcare to children can present a range of complex and unique legal issues. At times it involves significant controversy. Our May Forum will explore topics such as parental rights, Gillick competence and whether children should have more say in the treatment decisions that affect them. And we’ve put together another impressive line-up of speakers - more details below!
This is a must-attend event for professionals working in or alongside healthcare who want to stay up-to-date on trends and issues affecting the sector. Each session is optional – attend all or pick and choose. But be quick, registration is free of charge and places are limited.
Session 1: How do doctors assess whether a child can consent to medical treatment?
Session 2: Should children be more involved in healthcare decisions that affect them?
Session 3: The ABC of parental rights and children’s welfare
