Case Studies in Nursing Ethics

Front Cover
Jones & Bartlett Learning, 2000 - Medical - 402 pages
This book uses case situations that have occurred in nursing practice to raise and explore the ethical questions of nursing ethics. It is divided into three parts. Part one idenitifies the meaning and justification of ethical claims as they apply to nursing. Part two explores basic principles of ethics and their meanings in clinical nursing practice. Part three presents several ethical issues that occur in health care, such as abortion, genetic interventions, treatment refusals, experimentation, HIV/AIDS care, and end-of-life treatment decisions.
