Teaching ethical decision making skills
Abstract:
Teaching ethical decision making skills
Conference Sponsor:Midwest Nursing Research Society
Conference Year:1991
Author:Carpenter, Martha, PhD
P.I. Institution Name:The University of Iowa
Title:Assistant Professor, Retired
The major focus in nursing ethics literature and research has been



the content of the ethical decision rather than the ethical



decision making process. Since the process nurses use to resolve



ethical situations in the clinical setting has not been adequately



described, two independent grounded theory research studies were



conducted with psychiatric and acute medical registered nurses. A



descriptive model of the process nurses used to resolve clinical



ethical situations was generated during each study. From these



models, several obstacles to effective decision-making were



identified: emotional tyranny; inadequate communication and



negotiation skills; inability to identify the problem, decision



maker, or goal; and ambiguous roles and accountability for



decision-making. Based upon these identified obstacles and Bloom's



taxonomy of educational objectives, recommendations for a



hierarchial nursing ethics curriculum for baccalaureate, graduate,



and doctoral programs are proposed.
