Health decisions. Who makes them?

What choices do you have when it comes to health decisions for your child?

Who gets to make those decisions? Where do your rights as a parent start and finish?

Who decides what treatment your child gets if they have cancer? Or another health issue.

This is the recent story of Oshin Kiszko from WA around enforcing chemotherapy on a child. It asks more questions than gives answers! It is thought provoking.

I find the same issues for patients when they decide to help their cancer management by eating well and getting into nutritional ketosis. I know of parents and patients ‘hiding’ their nutritional management from the doctors for fear of retribution. No kidding!
