|Title:||Protecting volunteers: a review of recent legislative developments||Contributor(s):||Eburn, Michael Ernest (author)||Publication Date:||2003||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/2006||Abstract:||The NSW Parliament has introduced via the Civil Liability Act 2002 (NSW) various provisions that are designed to modify the law of negligence as it applies to Good Samaritans and volunteers. These provisions will be relevant in the context of health and medical law as many health services are provided by 'Good Samaritans' (traditionally the person who comes across an accident and who may be a qualified health professional or simply a concerned member of the community) and volunteers, (for example members of an organisation that provides emergency care to the sick and injured, for example the St John Ambulance, Australian Red Cross, Surf Lifesaving etc.) This paper will consider the perceived need that the parliament was seeking to meet with this legislation and will consider the impact the legislation may have both for those that provide care and those that receive care.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||Australasian Law Teacher's Association (ALTA) Annual Conference, Brisbane, 6-9th July, 2003||Source of Publication:||Changing Law: Proceedings of the 2003 Australasian Law Teacher's Association (ALTA) Annual Conference, p. 1-13||Publisher:||ALTA: Australasian Law Teachers' Association||Place of Publication:||Brisbane, Australia||Field of Research (FOR):||180126 Tort Law||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://www.alta.edu.au/2003_conference_7thjuly.html
