  • More relevant today than ever, Husted and Husted's classic nursing ethics text provides a practical framework to help nurses engage with patients to make difficult ethical decisions. It delivers a systematic approach to bioethical decision-making that can help clarify situations where "right" and "wrong" are not clearly defined. An abundance of case studies provide practice in bioethical decision-making, with nearly 60 bioethical dilemmas analyzed in detail.
