Children’s and parents’ informed and voluntary consent to major medical and surgical treatment.
Applications are invited for a PhD studentship, fees and tax-free stipend will be funded by the ESRC and London Bloomsbury Colleges for three years, full-time, starting October 2017. The student will examine the sociology, philosophy, ethics and law of consent, competence, autonomy and practical decision-making and will undertake qualitative research informed by the sociologies of healthcare and childhood, and by critical realism. Data collection will involve direct and online contact with 40 families and with healthcare professionals in two medical specialties that the student will share in choosing. We hope BAME candidates will consider applying.
