How General Practitioners Determine Young People's Rights
Bartholomew, Terence
Youth Studies Australia, v28 n2 p5-13 Jun 2009
In this research, 300 doctors in Victoria were asked to make decisions about a hypothetical patient's competence and confidentiality. It appears that assumptions embedded in relevant law, the vague nature of existing legal criteria and the diversity in assessment practices all have the potential to act as obstacles to young people's claim to rights in the medical context. (Contains 4 notes and 2 tables.)
