Description

Ethics in Nursing blends the concrete detail of common problems in nursing practice with the perspective and methods of philosophical ethics, describing the essential structure of moral dilemmas and outlining the skills and understanding needed to analyze them. The new edition has been expanded to include many new cases and new material on "withholding the prognosis," nurse autonomy, collaboration with physicians, integrity-preserving compromise, institutional ethics committees, "blowing the whistle," public policy and advance directives, and methods for evaluating ethical theories. From reviews of the first edition: "[Combines] philosophical clarity, well-chosen case studies, and careful analysis of specific problems....Particularly recommended for courses designed to introduce nurses to the ethical problems of their profession."--Topics in Clinical Nursing"A handy reference for professional nurses in practice."--Nursing Outlookshow more
