Summary: Most of the current literature on bioethics or applied ethics in a medical context focus on the physician or the patient. In Nursing Ethics, Michael Yeo, Anne Moorhouse and their co-authors provide an overview of the one aspect of the healthcare system that is often overlooked--the ethical dilemmas faced by the nurses who work in the 'front-lines' of the health care system. But while the book is aimed at nurses and nursing, much of what is discussed generalizable to moreany health care practitioner or practice.

For the second edition the introduction has been expanded to more fully explain and set in context such concepts as utilitarianism and rights-based theories. The autonomy chapter has been substantially revised, and there is new material on beneficence, on scarce resources, and on caring as an ethical framework.
