Legal and Ethical Aspects of Care
HPNA Palliative Nursing Manuals — Legal and Ethical Aspects of Care, 2016
Edited by Nessa Coyle, PhD, APRN, FAAN
Series edited by Betty R. Ferrell, RN, PhD, MA, FAAN, FPCN®, CHPN®
Effective palliative care that rests on a sound ethical foundation requires ongoing discussions about patient and family values and preferences. This is especially important when addressing care at end of life, including artificial nutrition and hydration, withdrawal of life-sustaining therapies and palliative sedation, as well as requests for assistance in hastening death. The eighth volume in the HPNA Palliative Nursing Manuals series, Legal and Ethical Aspects of Care, provides an overview of critical communication skills and formal organizational mechanisms, such as ethics committees and interdisciplinary rounds, required for decisions in ethical dilemmas which respect diversity in the views of colleagues as well as patients.
The content of the concise, clinically-focused volumes in the HPNA Palliative Nursing Manuals series is one resource for nurses preparing for specialty certification exams; and provides a quick reference in daily practice.
