Essentials of Teaching and Learning in Nursing Ethics
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
- 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

|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."
