An introduction to the ethical and legal dilemmas in nursing
practice, this text is designed to provoke the nurse to reflect on
the nature of his or her professional obligations and future
practice. The authors firstly familiarise the reader with the basic
principles of ethical debate and the overall structure of the legal
system as it effects nurses. They then address the fundamental
dilemmas of nursing practice, such as whether or not paternalism
can ever be justified, if patients have the right to die, and what
a nurse's response should be to poor professional practice by
colleagues. The book aims to enhance the reader's understanding of
the issues, and to educate nurses to develop their own skills of
reasoning and judgement. -- .
