Any course of action a midwife might take or fail to take, any advice she may give to her client will have legal implications whether she knows it or not.Every midwife at whatever level will, therefore, find this compendium on the legal aspects of her profession an essential guide through the legal framework within which she operates.
No previous knowledge of law is required. To make the subject matter easy to absorb, relevant legal statutes are highlighted, legal cases illustrating real-life situations are quoted and discussed and test-questions follow each chapter.
Legal terms are defined and explained in a glossary.
