This groundbreaking annual review has provided over three decades of knowledge, insight, and research on topics critical to the field of nursing. The 34th volume presents abundant new research devoted to examining and forwarding the field of modern ethics in nursing. It reflects the rapid acceleration of change in the roles and responsibilities of nurses and the concurrent need for reexamination of professional ethical values. Articles focus on creating nurses who are able to negotiate, adapt, and provide excellent care to patients as they take on greater administrative duties, rely more on technology, and assume some of the roles and responsibilities of physicians.
Chapters are comprised of carefully selected articles that underscore the importance of in-depth ethical education and professional character development in the nursing classroom, and its continued evolution as nurses adapt to a changing health care environment throughout their careers. They include examples of contemporary health care dilemmas and how nurses have used ethical values to guide their behavior in situations where they encounter highy vulnerable patients; address ethical problems relating to family issues such as self-neglect and the wellbeing of children in military families; and the systems-of-care issues regarding genetics, smart home technologies for older adults, interprofessional collaboration, and post-deloyment reintegration.
