Author(s) Alfred Addy
Country Ghana
Abstract This paper arguing for the inclusion of a medical law education within the nursing and midwifery curriculum in Ghana is a compelling and well-reasoned piece. It highlights the crucial nature of this education for the advancement of the Ghanaian experience in quality healthcare delivery. The author effectively argues that by incorporating internationally benchmarked contents, Ghana can benefit from global best practices and ensure that its healthcare professionals are well-versed in legal aspects.

One of the strengths of this paper is its clear assertion that a medical law education is necessary to enhance the competence and professionalism of nurses and midwives in Ghana. The author provides evidence to support his claim, stating that legal knowledge is essential for healthcare professionals to navigate complex ethical dilemmas, protect patient rights, and avoid potential malpractice lawsuits. By including this education in the curriculum, Ghana can elevate its healthcare system to international standards. Furthermore, by adopting internationally benchmarked contents, Ghana can tap into global best practices. This will enable healthcare professionals to stay updated with current legal frameworks and regulations in other countries. This knowledge exchange will not only enhance their understanding but also provide opportunities for collaboration with international counterparts.

In conclusion, the paper convincingly argues for the inclusion of a medical law education within the nursing and midwifery curriculum in Ghana. By incorporating internationally benchmarked contents, Ghana can ensure that its healthcare professionals are well-equipped with legal knowledge and skills necessary for providing quality care. This step will undoubtedly contribute to advancing the overall healthcare experience in Ghana.
