‘You, the reader, whoever you are, are not a complete novice in ethics. You understand the meaning of ‘good’ and ‘bad’ and ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ and you know that some actions are right while others are wrong and that some things are good while others are bad. These aspects are precisely what ethics as a subject of systematic study deals with’ (Ewing: 1995) Now in its third edition, updated and expanded, Ethics in Healthcare approaches the topic of ethics from the perspective of the nurse and offers a viewpoint on the many ethical questions he or she has to deal with every day. This established and accessible text takes a fresh look at the question of cultural diversity and explains why the profession of nursing has to adhere to a common value system. A brand new chapter covering the teaching of ethics has been added to explore the question of the moral development of the student. To ensure the book remains up to date and to improve accessibility, chapters have been re-arranged and new content added throughout. The core principles and content of the book remain, divided into the following sections:
