Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Today's nurses face a multitude of legal and ethical dilemmas that fall outside the scope of clinical and medical training. Practical and thought provoking, ETHICS and ISSUES IN CONTEMPORARY NURSING, 4th Edition examines the latest trends, principles, theories, and models in patient care to help you make ethically sound decisions in complex and often controversial situations. Acknowledging an ever-expanding global society, compelling examples are presented from national and international headlines that invite readers to explore the cases in light of socio-cultural influences, personal values, and professional ethics. Historical examples demonstrate how to think critically through various problems while upholding moral and professional standards, as well as the law. Key topics include patient advocacy and rights, diversity, medication error prevention, health care information management, portability and accountability, and health care reform. In addition to in-book learning features like analysis problems, review questions, sample forms, and appendices, ETHICS and ISSUES IN CONTEMPORARY NURSING, 4th Edition offers supplemental, interactive tools to challenge you further, and prepare you for morally sound behavior in any health care setting.
