This book aims to fill a gap with an in-depth exploration of nursing ethics content from the western philosophical tradition and some of the methods used in teaching this content. It will address cross-cultural issues in using specific ethics content. It will also reveal the poverty of the present dualism model in nursing ethics and replace this with a more complex and more useful model that invites debate. Its scope is both wide and deep but that is needed to enrich the basis for teaching nursing ethics. Outlines and critiques all current ethical theories and considers their application to nursing practice Explores ethical issues in numerous cultures Includes case studies drawn from a range of countries Written by leading nurse educators and philosophers in the field
Effective counselling is a cornerstone of all nursing care. This new edition moves beyond the identification of a problem in order to examine fully the practical nature of counselling concentrating in particular on the potentially highly senstive nature of caring. Topics covered include support systems, the bearing of ethical issues on nurisng practice and the special skills required to give appropriate advice in the case of bereavement. The book's theoretical underpinning is once again the authors's own 'Four Questions Model', which has been expanded for this edition: What is happening? What is the meaning of it? What is your goal? and How are you going to do it? All in all, the book comprises a practical guide for student and practising nurses in all disciplines.Highly successful backlist title which fits in well with Balliere Tindall's publishing programme as a whole. New references.
This new edition of a highly regarded standard text continues to focus on an ethic of care, while significantly enhancing and strengthening its theoretical basis. Extensively revised and updated in both content and approach, the third edition: o addresses many of the current pressing issues in nursing o emphasises the importance of relationships in health care o examines the process of decision making o uses an four-questions model for ethical decision making o offers material to stimulate discussion o considers the international dimensions of nursing ethics o includes the newly published NMC Code of Professional Conduct 2002 For nurses who practise primary nursing and who are therefore in a special relationship with their patients, this book is particularly appropriate. However, any nurse, whether qualified or in training, will find it easy to read, constructive and thought-provoking.Places ethics within the caring context of nursing
Nursing has always been a passport to the world; the movement was once from west to east and north to south, but now it has been reversed due to globalisation. This book addresses the challenges of globalisation, particularly how to cope with practitioners from culturally different areas, with educationally different standards, and with socially different expectations, and also issues with a global dimension such as addiction, nurse migration, women prisoners, standards of care, and terrorism.
The second edition of this successful book is about understanding, valuing, managing and developing yourself as a professional. The text leads from basic self-awareness, via examples and exercises, to the importance of building a personal philosophy. The final chapter, on developing yourself and choosing a career path, has been completely revised in line with the UKCC's current emphasis on the importance of lifelong learning. Readers will find the tone of the book warm and motivating.
Today's nurses find themselves in the position of having to redefine their identity. They must ask themselves why they matter, what is important about them as professionals, and how they contribute as team members. Starting from an ethical standpoint, this book explores the nature of nursing and the dilemmas facing today's professionals. The author shares her vision of a new kind of professional - a vision which will empower readers to discover fresh meaning in their work and in their role.
