  1. Enhancing nurses'ethical practice : Development of a clinical ethics program.

    Article - En anglais

    There is increasing attention paid to ethics under managed care ; however, few clinical-based ethics programs are reported.

    This paper reports the assessment and outcomes of one such program.

    A quasi-experimental research design with t-tests is used to assess the outcome differences between participants and control groups.

    There are twenty nurses in each ; they are assessed for comparability.

    Differences are predicted on two outcomes using reliable and valid measures : nurses'time with their patients in ethics discussions, and nurses'opinions regarding their clinical ethics environments.

    Results reveal a statistically significant difference (p<. 05) between the two groups, with modest positive change in the participants.

    Additional exploratory analyses are reported on variables influential in health care services.
