Authors:
M Hyde D Power

Aust J Soc Issues 2000 May;35(2):117-27

School of Education and Professional Studies, Griffith University, Australia.

This paper examines the social parameters surrounding the management of informed consent procedures for the parents of young deaf children for the surgical fitting of a cochlear implant ('bionic ear') to their child.

The paper analyses the components of parental consent procedures for surgical implantation of their child, covering the risk-benefit analysis and, in particular, the information base that is provided for parents about the social construction of a 'Deaf life' by many Deaf people.
