Everyday Nursing Ethics Summary

Everyday Nursing Ethics by Kath M. Melia

This practical introduction to nursing ethics has been written for both nursing students and qualified nurses. It takes a case-based approach to a range of issues which confront all nurses and challenge them to think about the ethical dimension of their work. Each chapter introduces a relevant ethical theory which is then developed in such a way that the reader can build up to an understanding of the different arguments that have been put forward to justify moral stances. The arguments are related directly to a case so that the reader can see how this ethical debate works. The cases quoted are principally not dramatic ethical dilemmas, but realities which confront nurses every day.

Table of Contents
