About this book


This book sets out to provide answers to these and related questions and is concerned with moral problems arising from attempts to care for competent clients. It gives an overview, that is both comprehensive and accessible, of the principle-based approach to bioethics as applied to nursing. Throughout the book illustrative examples ensure the theory has practical relevance for everyday nursing situations. The relationship between ethics and the United Kingdom Central Council for Nursing, Midwifery and Health Visiting Code of Professional Conduct is also explored.
