A narrative exploration of the relationship between reading literature and poetry and ethical practice: narratives of student nurses and nurse educators
Professional health care education in ethics often centres upon considering perceived ethical problems or dilemmas in clinical practice utilising external and deductive tools such as ethical principles (autonomy, beneficence, non-maleficence, justice), ethical guidelines and codes of professional conduct. Engagement with the arts and humanities offers a different perspective centring on a teleological ethic characterised by attention to ends (e.g. human flourishing), cultivation of virtue, the telling of narrative, recognising relationality and acknowledging contextual factors.
