Concepts and Cases in Nursing Ethics is a case-based exploration of the core principles of health care ethics applied to nursing. The book is a collaboration between philosopher-ethicist Michael Yeo and nurse-ethicist and educators Anne Moorhouse, Pamela Khan, and Patricia Rodney. It thus combines philosophical and ethical analysis with extensive knowledge and experience in nursing and health care. The book is organized around six main concepts in health care ethics: beneficence, autonomy, truthfulness, confidentiality, justice, and integrity. A chapter is devoted to the elucidation of each of these concepts. In each chapter, historical background and conceptual analysis are supplemented by case studies that exemplify issues and show how the concept applies in health care and nursing practice. In this new edition, the conceptual analysis throughout has been updated and reworked in view of changes in the health care system. In addition, there is a new chapter specifically devoted to recent developments affecting nursing and other health professions. Previous case studies have been modified and new ones added to address current and emerging issues. Although the text focuses mainly on the social and political situation of nursing, the analysis has relevance also for medicine and the allied health professions, and indeed for anyone working in the health system.

Nurses in all phases of their career and in all health care settings will welcome this stellar book on nursing ethics in its third edition. It situates nursing in the current context of health care delivery and offers depth in ethical concepts (values, principles, and theories of ethics, including a comparison of theories of justice). It also provides practical guidance about how to understand, discuss, and analyze situations of nursing ethics in practice. Based upon the premise that nurses need to be critical thinkers and reflect upon their own ethical practice, these editors and authors focus on six key values to provide detailed discussion enhanced by case studies (several based on Canadian cases). These current and highly relevant cases highlight specific implications for nurses and provide guidance for potential best ethical approaches in care. Arguing for flexibility in use of models for ethical decision-making, the authors emphasize the need to know the person in care and seek to understand the person's situation." - Janet Storch, Professor Emeritus, School of Nursing, University of Victoria "Yeo, Moorhouse, Khan, and Rodney's Concepts and Cases in Nursing Ethics is an accomplished and masterful text. Each chapter is cogent and logically arranged. The case studies and study questions are relevant, thoughtful, and useful. The authors show considerable insight into a wide range of concepts and questions in contemporary nursing ethics. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this text and I can recommend it to all nurses." - Alan Armstrong, University of Central Lancashire
