An essential resource for both undergraduate and postgraduate students and registered nurses to develop new insights and moral wisdom around ethical issues they will face in clinical practice.

Bioethics: A Nursing Perspective, 6th Edition continues to set the standard for bioethical issues in nursing practice. As with previous editions, this highly respected text provides a comprehensive framework to assist students and registered nurses to understand the ethical challenges, obligations and responsibilities they will encounter in daily practice.

    • Greater depth on ethical issues, particularly those concerning ethical conduct, unprofessional conduct, professional misconduct and ‘morality politics’
    • Case scenarios and critical questions that encourage students and registered nurses to reflect on key issues that relate to their own practice
    • New chapters: - Ethics, dehumanisation and vulnerable populations - Professional obligations to report harmful behaviours with a focus on impaired practitioners, child abuse and elder abuse
    • Introduces a new concept: ‘cultural humility’
    • Content on ‘needs versus wants’, ‘the right not to be informed’, palliative sedation, preventing ethical conflicts, the relationship between professional judgment and moral decision-making in nursing and health care contexts, and future ethical difficulties concerned with climate change, peak oil, pandemic influenza, antimicrobial resistance and health inequalities
    • All chapters and references have been updated to reflect contemporary nursing practice, locally and globally
