Description

This book provides students and practitioners of nursing and midwifery with a general introduction to the nature and types of law in New Zealand, and to legislation of special relevance to health professionals. In an increasingly complex professional world it is essential for healthcare workers to have knowledge and understanding of the law and its application to them, both as practitioners and citizens.The law affecting health professionals is constantly evolving and this edition has been revised to reflect legislative changes up to the end of 2001. These include: Amendments to the Mental Health (Compulsoty Assessment and Treatment) Act 1992 which occurred in 1999, amendments to the Health Information Privacy Cose to July 2000, changes introduced by the Nurses Amendment Act 1999, the New Zealand Public Health and Disability Act 2000 and the Health and Disability Services (Safety) Act 2001, and new legislations of relevances to nurse prescribers introduced in 2001.
