Summary "Law for Nurses and Midwives, 7th edition gives undergraduate and postgraduate nursing and midwifery students a concise introduction to the law as it pertains health care provision in Australia. As students will already appreciate, nursing and midwifery practice involves making decisions with and for others. This often requires evaluation of best interests and obligations and an assessment of what will best protect or enhance a patient or client's wellbeing. Understanding the application of current legal statutes - particularly those relating to negligence and consent - as they apply to professional practice is therefore essential for all nurses and midwives. Law for Nurses and Midwives, 7th edition provides students with information and knowledge necessary to make well informed and considered decisions - both for themselves and for those under their care.
