The legal and ethical issues that underpin Mia Masterson

Case study 1: Mia Masterson (No 4 Wellbeing street)
You are a registered nurse working in a local maternal and child health clinic. New parents David and Julian present with their 6 week old daughter Mia for a routine child health check. On assessment Mia appears to be developing well. Her height, weight and head circumference are within normal range. Mia is currently receiving formula via a bottle. During your consultation you notice that Mia is due for her first round of routine immunizations. You inform David and Julian of this. David states that Mia will not be receiving any immunizations. David adds that vaccines are merely as toxin-based propaganda for large pharmaceutical companies to make money. Julian further informs you that his niece was diagnosed with autism not long after having one of her vaccines and that he and David will not take the same risk with Mia.

Final marks and comments will then be discussed amongst the group to standardise the assignment expectations and marking process.

Additionally, all assignments will be marked blind to student names (student IDs only visible).
All fail marks plus a cross section of all other marks (pass, credit, distinction and high distinctions) across all classes will be moderated.
