Conceptual Issues in Nursing Ethics Research
Penticuff, Joy Hinson
Journal of Medicine and Philosophy. 1991 Jun; 16(3): 235-258.
Empirical studies that have attempted to describe nurses' ethical practice have used conceptual frameworks derived primarily from the disciplines of bioethics and psychology. These frameworks have not incorporated important concepts developed by nursing theorists over the past two decades. This article points out flaws in the past research frameworks and proposes a synthesis of ethical theory, nursing practice contexts, and empirical research methods to enrich theoretical development in nursing ethics.
