Disagreements in the care of critically ill children

There have been several recent high-profile cases of healthcare teams and parents fundamentally disagreeing about the care of critically ill children in the UK.

This short project will explore the social and medical factors that might be contributing to how disagreements about the care of critically ill children develop in the UK, and how they are being resolved. The project will result in the publication of a Bioethics briefing note that will summarise the evidence and the potential challenges for policy makers.
