Abstract:
In this poster presentation, findings from a larger multiple-case study of hospital clinical ethics committees are presented. Nurses and physicians from four sites, two in Central Canada and two in Atlantic Canada, were interviewed about the kinds of ethical situations they encountered in practice. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with 36 direct care nurses, 10 nurse managers, and 36 physicians. The interviews were audiotaped, typed verbatim, and returned to the participants in order that they could check the accuracy of the transcripts and remove any information they felt would identify them. Themes of ethical conflict were discussed by the four members of the study's research team and arrived at by consensus. A strength of this study is that it identifies themes of ethical conflict that cut across clinical disciplines. Our poster presentation focuses on describing the clinical ethical conflicts of nurses and physicians. We will outline similarities and differences of nurses' and physicians' clinical conflicts. Finally, we will address implications of these findings for professionals, for organizations and for future research.
