Abstract:
Curriculum review had identified a gap in integrating ethics content into all nursing courses and clinical practicums. A participatory action study was undertaken with clinical teachers invited to share in writing a story about a situation (either from direct participation or indirect observation) that caused them to ponder about an ethical or legal question. Fifty written stories were received, analysed for content, and classified by the researchers according to type of ethical issues (based on the 2007 Code of Ethics for Registered Nurses CNA ,2008). The largest proportion of stories involved ethical violation, ethical distress, ethical uncertainty and ethical courage. The stories were reduced to ten teaching vignettes. A workshop was developed for students in years 2 and 3 of an undergraduate collaborative nursing program, and was piloted with clinical teachers. The nurse lawyer delivered a formal lecture on values clarification, the types of ethical situations (as defined by CNA) and an ethical framework. Working in small groups, teachers reviewed one vignette, then discussed and identified the type of ethical situation and the ethical framework. The student workshop then followed a similar format. Seventy eight per cent of the students responded that the workshop had been useful.
