Legal Guide for Healthcare Professionals
For Doctors, Nurses, Psychologists, Pharmacists, and Medical Students:
As a healthcare professional, your work is a calling, and it is a sacred one. For millennia, healthcare personnel and institutions have adhered to a duty to do no harm; a duty to heal rather than to maim or kill. And as a Christian, you understand that life is sacred – that we are made in the image of God. These principles are the foundation of your life-saving work.
But you may have experienced a trend of increasing pressure to conform to more “socially accepted” beliefs within your own practice. That’s why we have created this free legal manual, to explain the laws that protect your right to practice medicine according to your conscience, and what to do if the right is ever threatened.
