Resumen

DIAZ DE VALDES J, José Manuel. A CONSTITUTIONAL FRAME WORK FOR MEDICAL TREATMENTS IN CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENTS. Rev. chil. derecho [online]. 2010, vol.37, n.2, pp.271-310. ISSN 0718-3437.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-34372010000200004.

Consent to medical treatment in children brings up conflicts that are constitutional in nature, relating to the enforcement and limits of the fundamental rights of the children, as well as to the parents' rights and duties. Several children' rights might be interfered with by medical treatments (e.g., right to life, privacy), therefore such situations should be subject to the limits common to all interferences with fundamental rights. The substitution of the child's will by his/her parents' (but not by his/her legal representatives) is constitutionally acceptable insofar as it is subject to substantial (e.g., evolving principle; best interest of the child) and procedural limitations (right of the child to be informed). Rules are proposed to address disagreements between children, their parents and doctors.

Palabras clave : medical treatment; children's rights; best interest of the child; body autonomy.
