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." -

"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
