Summary note:
""Complex topics...expertly shared through the knowledge, skill, and understanding of the authors who are both nurses and attorneys."---Penny Brooke, APRN, JD College of Nursing, University of Utah" "This book serves as a comprehensive guide to understanding the legal and ethical dimensions of advanced practice nursing. Given the rapidly expanding role of the advanced practice nurse (APN), nurses must be prepared to face issues such as liability, malpractice, patient privacy rights, slander, and many more. With this book, APNs learn through real-life legal case studies how to manage and resolve legal and ethical conflicts." "The case studies presented contextualize key issues in advanced practice nursing, such as conflicting ethical obligations, legislative and private policy changes, and preventive risk management. The book also presents guidelines for navigating the legal system as it relates to advanced practice nursing and discusses court proceedings, serving as a patient advocate, and serving as an advocate for the APN's practice." "Providing comprehensive coverage of law, ethics, and advanced practice nursing, this book is must-reading not only for APNs, but also for nursing educators, researchers, lawyers, and ethicists working on behalf of APNs."--BOOK JACKET.
