Your responses will draw on theory, legislation, professional codes, practice standards and ethical principles. You will also provide a reflection based on your experience. (Only Australian laws should be provided). 2.Within the main area for discussion on each case study, firstly, identify the key issues present and identify the key laws relating to this and discuss them. The law falls into three areas; i.e. laws that relate to nursing and nursing students, laws that relate to the education provider and laws that relate to the health facility. Some relevant laws may not specific to nursing so you will need to search and identify these. 3.Reflection on each case study must be provided around this area of issue and decision making. This is the only part of assignment that can be written in first person (the rest must be in academic style, third person). It may be helpful to use a reflective cycle in doing this, e.g. Gibbs’ Model of reflection.
