Summary

Summary

Ethics and Conflicts is an in-depth look at the issues and processes that underlie ethical decision-making. As a powerful study of the critical relationship between nursing and ethics, this text takes a probing look at the beginning of life, explores the concerns related tohealth maintenance throughout the lifespan, and depicts issues related to the end of life care. Ethics and Conflicts explores the issues of group decision-making in ethical dilemmas and identifies ways in which nurses may respond when they do not agree with the decisions made by another health care provider or group.
