  I bought this book for my nursing ethics course. I haven't read much more than the case studies because it's not required and I don't have the time. While it isn't the most exciting book to read, the case studies give great examples of moral and ethical problems and the text follows up with further thinking on each case study. Accordingly, Case Studies in Nursing Ethics presents basic ethical principles and specific guidance for applying these principles in nursing practice, through analysis of over actual case study Reviews: 1. Case Studies in Nursing Ethics. This book uses case situations that have occurred in nursing practice to raise and explore the ethical questions of nursing ethics. It is divided into three parts.

ScienceDirect posted a nursing ethics case study where an end-stage prostate cancer patient, Mr. Green, confided to nursing staff about his plan to commit suicide. The patient asked the nurse to keep it a secret. The ethical problem is whether the nurse should tell the health care team members about the patient’s thought without his permission.

Description: 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. About the author () Robert Veatch is currently a professor of medical ethics at the Kennedy Institute of Ethics and professor of philosophy at Georgetown University. For ten years previously, he was on the staff of the Hastings Center (formerly the Institute of Society, Ethics, and the Life Sciences). A myriad of ethical challenges are present in this case study. A middle-aged man was admitted to a level I trauma-center in a large tertiary teaching hospital with multiple complicated severe injuries from a single motor vehicle accident. His identity was never accurately established and his wishes for his care were never elucidated.   According to Lechasseur, Caux, Dollé, & Legault (, p. ) the components of ethical competence are ethical sensitivity, ethical knowledge, ethical reflection, ethical decision making, ethical action, and ethical behavior. While there is much work to be done in developing best practices in teaching student nurses to handle ethical dilemmas.
