The Association of Lawyers for Children, in association with Hanson Renouf, is hosting a conference entitled “Children, health and the law” on 3rd October 2014 in Jersey.
The programme features a number of eminent speakers and the topics should be of significant interest to anybody practising in children law:
Transition planning for children in care with continuing health needs
Safeguarding in an acute setting
The importance of GPs working with social services
Recognising early signs of abuse and early intervention
Should doctors know more about the law and lawyers more about medicine when considering non-accidental injury?
Legal aspects to consent to medical treatment and safeguarding
Consent to medical treatment by minors
The impact of maltreatment and parental conflict on children’s mental health
The impact of MASH on joined up thinking for children with mental health needs
The keynote speaker is Mr Justice Hayden and the conference is chaired by Frances Judd QC. The poster and programme can be found below. Attendance is encouraged, not least as it would require a brief sojourn to beautiful Jersey!
