A patients personal values underpin his beliefs and guide his decisions. The nurse caring for such a patient is guided by the values of his profession which are expressed in the ANMC Code of Ethics for Nurses in Australia.What values from the Code do you think are most relevant here?Australian Nursing & Midwifery Council Code of Ethics for Nurses in Australia http://www.google.com.au/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&ved=0CB8QFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.nursingmidwiferyboard.gov.au%2Fdocuments%2Fdefault.aspx%3Frecord%3DWD10%252F1352%26dbid%3DAP%26chksum%3DGTNolhwLC8InBn7hiEFeag%253D%253D&ei=jWHdVLr3EsTamAX91oCgBQ&usg=AFQjCNGoKmCj7fYBIvSVAp742-CL3oguwQ&sig2=S96O42nndSoGsOvjjUmqzg&bvm=bv.85970519d.dGY
(Relevant provisions)
Section 7: Nurses value ethical management of information.
Nurses are aware of and comply with the conditions under which information about individuals including children people who are incapacitated or disabled or who do not speak or read English may or may not be shared with others. Nurses respect each persons wishes about with whom information may be shared and preserve each persons privacy to the extent this does not significantly compromise or disadvantage the health or safety of the person or others. Nurses comply with mandated reporting requirements and conform to relevant privacy and other legislation.
Note: this Code of Ethics is supported by and should be read in conjunction with the Code of Conduct for Nurses in Australia and the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Council National Competency Standards for the Registered Nurse National Competency Standards for the Enrolled Nurse and National Competency Standards for the Nurse Practitioner.
Patients personal information is mostly unknown to the doctors and nurses who have cared for them during their contact with the health system. One reason for this is that most health assessments do not entail asking patients about their values and beliefs or their wishes about the limits to continued treatment such as CPR. Read The value of taking an ethics history by Sayers et al. (2001) and discuss what taking an ethics history might entail in 400 words.
Sayers G Barratt D Gothard C Onnie C Perera S & Schulman D 2001 The value of taking an ethics history Journal of Medical Ethics vol. 27 no. 2 pp. 114-117 http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1733372/Activity 3
A study by Tulsky Chesney and Lo (2005) found that conversations between doctors and patients about CPR preferences and options took about ten minutes and missed key information such as the likelihood of surviving CPR. Visit the website Respecting Patients Choices (supported by the Department of Health and Ageing). It has excellent state-based information and resources on advanced care planning: http://www.respectingpatientchoices.org.au/ and so does the SA Health website:
