Have you ever experienced conflict with medical professionals over your child’s healthcare?
Informed consent is a principle that empowers parents to make educated and informed decisions over their children’s health and medical care.
Your choices can sometimes lead to conflict with health professional who disagree with your decision. While they are required to remain respectful towards you, this does not always happen.
You may have experienced conflict around birth choices, vaccination choices, managing medication, or even managing fevers. If so, we want to hear from you.
We are looking for parents who are willing to tell their story, to help us inform other families.
Would you be prepared to share your story with us?
We are also looking for parents willing take part in an educational video featuring their story, alongside practical advice from legal and healthcare professionals.
