Every day nurses are required to make ethical decisions in the course of caring for their patients. This book provides the background necessary to understand ethical decision making and its implications for patient care. The authors focus on the individual nurse’s responsibilities – promoting health, preventing illness, restoring health and alleviating suffering – as well as considering the wider issues affecting patients, colleagues and society as a whole.

This third edition is fully updated, and takes into account recent changes in ICN position statements and WHO documents, as well as addressing current issues in healthcare, such as providing for the health and care needs of refugees and asylum seekers, bioethics and the enforcement of nursing codes.
