The reading assignments from the Marquis and Houston (2014) textbook references systematic approaches to ethical problem solving, principles of ethical reasoning, legal issues, and advocacy. For this discussion, please reflect on and include in your discussion the following:
- Compare and contrast ethical framework(s) for decision making.
- Identify the principles of ethical reasoning and discuss the characteristics of each. From your experience functioning as a patient advocate in nursing, elaborate and discuss at least one principle that you have used within your practice. Describe the outcome.
Support your discussion and opinions with facts, relevant examples from personal nursing practice, and at least two citations from the reading or peer-reviewed professional nursing literature. Remember to use APA 6th edition formatting for all discussion posts and reference citations.
