This is the first of its kind to bring together legal and ethical concepts specifically for the Australian and New Zealand paramedic profession.This book promotes the understanding of ethical principles and legal regulations through realistic scenarios and extensive case studies, which are available both in the book and on Elsevier's Evolve platform. The book includes Australian state-specific legislation and local case law, and there is a chapter devoted specifically to the New Zealand paramedic service. This excellent law textbook focuses on the essential concepts and skills local paramedics need to respond to life-threatening emergencies in often-unfamiliar environments. For paramedics to determine the best course of action in any situation they need an intimate understanding of the profession's code of conduct and current legal regulations. In its attention to key areas such as consent, negligence, child protection, mental health and record-keeping, this book proves to be a fundamental resource for the undergraduate paramedic course in Australia and New Zealand. The textbook is written in a clear, engaging style ideal for undergraduate paramedic students as well as ambulance service volunteers and practicing paramedics.
