Ethics in Oncology Nursing

Ethics in Oncology Nursing

Author: J. M. Erickson, K. Payne Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 28/06/2019

Ethics in Oncology Nursing examines the inherent challenges encountered by nurses through the care of patients with cancer. In addition to foundational content on ethics and ethical practice, this book addresses key areas in oncology nursing in which ethical concerns commonly arise, including treatment decision-making, clinical trials, genetics, and palliative and end-of-life care. Case studies are provided to offer context and application to nursing practice.
