Overview

This title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the United States. The authors have developed a holistic approach that explores: ethics in hospital and community settings, inter-disciplinary teamwork, ward and hospital management, nursing research, performance management and the political ethics of nursing administration, health service re-structuring and reform. The content has been substantially revised for this edition and significant new material added to reflect developments in theory and practice.

• covers a wide range of ethical issues - much more than just ‘clinical' dilemmas and decision-making skills
• a down-to-earth and practical approach to applied ethics
• user-friendly layout
• material on moral theory kept to a minimum (but dealt with thoroughly at the end of the book)
• focuses on ethical issues in nursing and case studies taken from nursing practice i.e. the concrete concerns of nurses and other front-line workers
• pedagogical features include: chapter aims, learning outcomes and further reading for possible essay, tutorial and project topics
• also useful as a general work of reference on ethic in health care

• An up-to-date analysis of professions in the context of modernity, to enable health professionals to make sense of global cultural & social developments
• An analysis of the ethics of evidence-based practice
• An examination of professional accountability and ethics in performance management to help practitioners/managers understand the ethical basis of management
• useful web links and teaching notes on a dedicated website:
