Sloper, Patricia and Franklin, Anita (2005) Listening and responding? Children's participation in health care within England. International Journal of Children's Rights. pp. 11-29. ISSN 1571-8182Full text available as:
This article examines recent health policy developments in England in relation to children's rights under Article 12 and 13 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). It draws on practice and research literature to explore evidence regarding: children's participation both within decisions about their own care and concerning the development of health services, their access to mechanisms that allow them a voice, the provision of and need for accessible information, and factors which prevent or facilitate children's participation. The paper does not explore in detail issues concerning children's consent or competence to participate.
