Racism and Its Implications in Ethical-Moral Reasoning in Nursing Practice: A Tentative Approach to a Largely Unexplored Topic
Nursing Ethics. 1998 Mar; 5(2): 139-146.
Nursing as a profession seems to avoid considering the problem of racism. There is, however, a need to address this topic and to evaluate its implications for nursing practice. This article attempts to establish a rationale for nursing to address racism and introduce it into academic discourse. The results of a small-scale study by the author are analysed and the implications for ethical-moral reasoning in nursing practice are discussed in relation to professional codes of conduct developed by nurses' professional organizations in the UK and elsewhere.
