Internal Code : MAS4679 Nursing Assignment Questions : Use literature and the case study to define and discuss the ethical principles of beneficence and non-maleficence which are relevant to the areas of risk in the case study. Define and discuss aspects of the Mental Health Act 2007, which are relevant to the areas of risk in the case study. The purpose of the question is to clarify the student understanding of the principles and how they can relate the principles to a clinical situation. 1)State briefly in an opening sentence what the main risks for your client in the case study are. 2) Define each ethical principle (beneficence and non-maleficence) briefly using literature. Definitions for these ethical principles can be found in most ethics in health care or ethics in nursing text books. 3) Have a discussion about how the ethical principles relate to the case study (including literature) and identified risks. In effect, how are we benefiting or hoping to support the client by our involvement or interventions and how do we balance this with avoiding harm. 14 total views, 2 views today
