Overview of Dilemma
When a patient requires surgery to save his life, most will choose this option with no reservations. But what if surgery requires lengthy rehabilitation and a colostomy for the rest of his life? Medical management is an option, but has less than a 50-50 chance of surviving. How can the nurse can ensure that the patient fully understands all treatment options when there is both a language and a cultural barrier is the essence of this dilemma.
Clinical Dilemmas are a new series of clinical reasoning case studies that emphasize the “art” of nursing. Each study has an emphasis that integrates aspects of caring, spiritual care, nurse engagement/presence, and ethical decision making and its relevance to nursing practice.
These case studies can be used in the classroom as an active learning tool to develop the ethical comportment of nurses as well as in post-conference in the clinical setting. Students will also develop clinical reasoning as they identify relevant clinical data, determine the nursing priority and resultant nursing interventions.
