Professional ethics and law resources

​Paediatricians and other clinicians often have to take very difficult decisions while acting in strict accordance with the law and with sensitivity towards the customs and beliefs practiced by their patients and their patients' families. These resources are intended to support the training and critical thinking of those taking these decisions.

They are focused on the needs of those practicing in the UK.

This is not a complete or exclusive list of resources. We are keen to get information on further resources - please contact the Ethics and Law Advisory Committee with suggestions on john.pettitt@rcpch.ac.uk.
