This new edition of Nursing Law For Students In Ireland presents up-to-date legislation and legal issues affecting nurses in Ireland.

Written for nursing students at universities and Institutes of Technology and post-registration programmes where law is a module.

  • New to this edition:
    • Practice standards and professional guidance issued by An Bord Altranais, the Department of Health and Children and the HSE for the Registered Nurse Prescriber
    • Up-to-date leading Irish and UK cases are used throughout the text, such as Fitzpatrick & Another v FK & Another [2008] IEHC 104, which deals with capacity to refuse medical treatment
  • Written in an accessible narrative style, it covers the four areas of accountability affecting all nurses:
    • Professional liability
    • Civil liability
    • Criminal liability
    • Accountability to the employer
  • Where legal concepts or terminologies are used, they are thoroughly and clearly explained in a 'non-legal' manner
  • Each chapter contains a concluding summary, useful websites and further reading for research purposes
