In this textbook for nursing students, Fry (PhD, RN) and Veatch (Kennedy Institute of Ethics, Georgetown University and author of Case Studies in Medical Ethics ) investigate special ethical situations nurses face. They address dealing with situations concerning values and morals, how to keep the needs of others in mind, and the distribution of health resources. Other ethical concerns explored are patient autonomy, telling the truth, confidentiality, the value of human life, reproductive issues, genetics, and mental health. The authors conclude with chapters on human research, patient consent, and death. The book includes a list of cases used, and the new edition has a chapter on HIV and AIDS. It also has more current cases, including a case study of Terri Schiavo, and incorporates new nursing regulations. Annotation ©2005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
