0 Reviews
Focusing on an area of growing concern amongst academics and clinicions, and combining analysis with qualitative interview data, this text provides a thorough study of the ethical reasoning of doctors and nurses. Based on extensive interviews, it shows how qualitative research methods can be used to study ethical reasoning, producing important results for normative ethics, that is, in thinking about how health-care professionals ought to act. The study aims to offer a significant contribution to work on the theory and method of bioethics.
