Using Personal Judgement in Nursing and Healthcare by David Seedhouse; Vanessa PeuthererWhat is personal judgement? How can it help me interpret and follow official guidelines? How can I use it successfully in my daily practice?Rules and codes for healthcare professionals continue to proliferate yet are unable to offer practical advice in specific circumstances. To help balance official rules with the variable, unique human element, David Seedhouse and Vanessa Peutherer explain what personal judgement is and how it can be applied routinely and effectively in everyday decision-making in healthcare. Through the use of over 40 interactive scenarios drawn from real-life practice, the authors encourage readers to use a range of techniques to boost their personal judgement, introducing different models and approaches to decision-making and exploring their strengths as well as their limitations. The authors then talk through their own suggestions for solving commonplace but challenging healthcare problems
To protect patient's interests in health care, principles of informed consent have been developed to ensure a person's right to decide the type of treatments they are prepared to receive. Patients see themselves as active participants in their health care and health care professions support this involvement. Informed consent not only protects the patients' rights, but also those of nurses and other health care professionals, from possible legal ramifications.
This programme explores ethics in nursing, with reference to the Australian Code of Nursing Ethics. It defines ethics, and explains why it is critical that nurses know about ethics and the standards of behaviour that are demanded by their profession. It also takes a look at what ethics are not, as often there can be confusion in people’s minds about exactly what defines ethics. It examines various types of ethics and how they impact on, and play out in, the nursing profession, and features two experts – Sue Hunter from La Trobe University’s Division of Nursing and Midwifery, and Registered Nurse, Sally Heads.
The article discusses the whistleblowing of nurses and midwives in Australia as of 2019. Topics covered include the downfall of a Queensland hospital surgeon following a nurse whistleblower's complaints outside of the organisation on poor surgical outcomes and patient deaths, and the emerging theme of hospitals' dismissal of insider sub-standard care reports due to fear of liability or reputational damage. Also noted is the need for hospitals to be open to feedback and resolution of issues.
According to Roy Morgan Research, nurses continued their supremacy of Australia's most highly regarded professions with "94% of Australians in 2017 (up 2% from 2016) rating nurses 'very high' or 'high' for their 'ethics and honesty'". Since inception of the annual Image of Professions survey by Roy Morgan in 1994, nurses have remained at the top as the most trusted of all professions.
