Alert: Medical Ethics Advisor now awards nursing contact hours, but please be aware that the January, February, and March 2018 issues do not offer that particular credit. Subscribers can still earn credits from more current issues or by rereading past issues that offer credit and taking the online test with a passing score.
Making medical ethics decisions, concerns about patient confidentiality, consent, competency, potential liability, treatment costs, and family wishes often are compounded by the conflicting demands of the government, the judiciary, healthcare providers, and patients.
Medical Ethics Advisor focuses on these issues so you can understand how biological, legal, financial, and moral viewpoints interrelate and shape the decision-making you encounter in your practice. Click here to see all recently published issues/articles from Medical Ethics Advisor.
