It attempts to provide a clear exposition and a critical evaluation of the developing human rights law and the way in which nursing practice reflects respect for the human rights of nurses and patients alike. The book draws upon comparisons with human rights based approaches and their impact on nursing practice in other jurisdictions in Europe and North America which already have experience in a legal process rooted in a human rights tradition. The authors are an academic lawyer experienced in writing on nursing and related health care law and ethics issues and a nurse with both practical and academic experience in nursing ethics and practice.
