Abstract:
The impending impact of health care reform supports the prediction that advanced practice nurses will occupy an expanded role in the delivery of health care, especially with underserved and rural areas, particularly within the field of mental health services. The inherent independent nature of such practice environments combined with the pluralism which exists in today's multiculral society demand that professional nurses working in these circumstances develop and utilize an ethical framework for the analysis of patient care in situations that invoke moral conflict. In the absence of a well articulated conceptual framework for nursing ethics, this paper argues for a theory of applied ethics--casuitics--used within a clinical reasoning model to analyze the complicated issues presented in a case invoking the sexual cultures of violence and polysubstance abuse in adolescents receiving treatment for sexually transmitted disease. This approach is based on a philosophy that ethics are values--those things that are cherished most by individuals in their own lives. Ethics, therefore, becomes what each individual encounters and believes. In an effort to appreciate such differences, a broader view is required that encompasses and acknowledges another's value system. Casuistry, as a process, recognizes and appreciates the importance of particular characterittics withn individual cases. As society becomes more ethnically diverse and multicutural in character, the potential for existing and interpersonal tensions increases. Many challenges to the psychiatric/mental health advanced nurse practitioner within the community are presented and discussed--dilemmas which are bound to increase in frequency and complexity as violence continues within the home and within society.
