Teaching Nursing Ethics by Cases: A Personal Perspective
Nursing Ethics. 1999 Sep; 6(5): 434-436.
This article is a reflection on the use of case study material in the teaching of ethics to nursing students.

This approach has recently been criticized on a number of grounds. The author suggests here that disquiet over teaching ethics in this way should motivate a concern not with whether, but how, teaching by cases is to be undertaken.
