The 5th edition of Bioethics provides nursing students with the necessary knowledge and understanding of the ethical issues effecting nursing practice. Groundbreaking in its first edition, Bioethics continues its role as a vital component of nursing education and provides a framework for students to understand the obligations, responsibilities and ethical challenges they will be presented with throughout their careers. This latest edition responds to new and emerging developments in the field and marks a significant turning point in nursing ethics in that it serves not only to inform but also to revitalise and progress debate on the issues presented.

"This book is a rich resource containing many interesting case examples, with the inclusion of some novel perspectives on contemporary bioethical issues. Each chapter has learning objectives and keywords, which should be helpful for those using the book as a study resource...It is suitable for people who wish to widen their understanding of a number of topics in bioethics, as well as offering interesting material for those who need to study in more depth. It also adds to the growing literature voicing a more distinctive perspective in nursing ethics." Nursing Ethics, March 2010
