Nursing Ethics. 1997 Mar; 4(2): 147-157.
Compromise as a notion is frequently met in discussion and debate regarding many everyday decisions, including health care. It therefore seems that it may be of interest and value to try to give this some careful consideration. In the following pages, an attempt is made to discuss what one might mean when one uses this concept. Consideration is then given to some possible uses of compromise is health care. Having suggested that in certain situations compromise is a morally valuable process, the author also considers some of the possible limits of compromise.
