Description - Ethics and Law for Australian Nurses by Kim Atkins
A sound understanding of moral and legal obligations is critical to developing responsible nursing practice and building the nurse-patient relationship. Ethics and Law for Australian Nurses provides a practical framework for understanding the ethical and legal dimensions of nursing practice. The fourth edition has been thoroughly revised to include updates to legislation, the NMBA professional standards and case examples. A new chapter on the legal system and a fully revised chapter on duty of care and negligence provide a thorough overview of the law as it applies to nursing practice. The text also includes expanded material on the regulation of nursing practice, advanced care directives, cultural safety, practice in the context of digital environments, person-centred care and assisted dying. Written in an accessible and engaging style, Ethics and Law for Australian Nurses provides a comprehensive guide for nurses training and practising in clinical, research and policy settings.
