  • Outlines and critiques all current ethical theories and considers their application to nursing practice
  • Discusses cross-cultural issues
  • Includes case studies drawn from a range of countries
  • Almost all contributors are from a nursing background
  • This title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the United States. 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 addresses cross-cultural issues in using specific ethics content. It also reveals 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

    Published Reviews "The book is separated into four distinct parts. The second section on Virtue, Caring and Feminist ethics is thorough, well written and orientated towards a nursing interpretation. Each of the chapters in this section remains pragmatic in application to clinical practice.

    Although primarily written for teachers and students of healthcare ethics, this book deserves a wider readership because it helps develop the agendas in nursing ethics."
