Concepts and Cases in Nursing Ethics is an introduction to contemporary ethical issues in health care, designed especially for Canadian audiences. The book is organized around six key concepts: beneficence, autonomy, truth-telling, confidentiality, justice, and integrity. Each of these concepts is explained and discussed with reference to professional and legal norms. The discussion is then supplemented by case studies that exemplify the relevant concepts and show how each applies in health care and nursing practice. This new fourth edition includes an added chapter on end-of-life issues, and it is revised throughout to reflect the latest developments on topics such as global health ethics, cultural competence, social media, and palliative sedation.

Reviews

"One thing that sets Concepts and Cases in Nursing Ethics apart from many other nursing ethics texts is its effective weaving of theory into thoughtful discussions of case studies that have direct relevance to nursing. Student nurses and registered nurses should find much of value in the book's ‘application to practice' approach, which offers insights not only into the nature of ethics but also into the ways in which ethical analysis can help develop ethical nursing practice."–Derek Sellman, Faculty of Nursing, University of Alberta

"Ethical training is increasingly necessary in order to help nurses distill the concepts of right and wrong conduct. This text, in its fourth edition, provides nurses at various stages of their careers with basic ethical decision-making theory supplemented with timely and relevant case studies designed to show why value-based care is–and will always be–an integral component of effective health care."–Blair Henry, Senior Ethicist, Assistant Professor at the University of Toronto
