The second edition of Ethics and Law for Australian Nurses is comprehensive in approach and allows students to understand the relationship between the legal and ethical frameworks of nursing practice. 

With an Australian focus, the book recognises the diversity of nursing practices and practice settings while emphasising their uniform aim of supporting and promoting health and wellbeing across the lifespan. Thoroughly revised to incorporate the latest methods and research, this edition features updates to legislation and new chapters on end-of-life decisions and Indigenous health care. It introduces readers to the 'Giving Voice to Values' approach to ethics and makes extensive use of case studies, legal case extracts, practical examples and reflective questions to illustrate key concepts throughout. 

Ethics and Law for Australian Nurses provides an innovative and intuitive skills-based approach to nursing ethics and the legal context of nursing practice.
