ObjectivesRecognize the role of the Registered Nurse as an advocate for the patient, the community and the profession. Illustrate successful methods to balance professional and personal values and goals. Nurses Advocating - Patients

Preserving Human Dignity: Every person has the right to be treated with honor and respect. Patient Equality: As the healthcare profession evolves in response to funding changes, technological advances and governmental regulations, disparities in the provision and delivery of care may become more defined.Freedom from Suffering: Many nurses list a desire to help others as a major factor in their decision to enter the profession. Helping to prevent or manage suffering whether physical, emotional or psychological is perhaps the most important aspect of care from the patients perspective.

Citizens rights beliefs, values, and personal philosophies Impacted by generational differences, cultural influences, and life experiences. Nurses have an obligation to professional beliefs, values, philosophies, and goals as they have been defined within our practice statutes, foundational documents, and the collective work of associations.

Shared Decision-making by consensus and collaboration Operating within the voice of the majority by also considering the needs of the collective Consideration of minority is as much as they dont impose on the rights, beliefs, and safety of the majority.

6Balancing Personal & Professional ValuesProfessional DilemmaValues AlignmentNot always a clear choice (Ethical and Moral Dilemmas)Immunization for polio, pertussis, or measles Public smoking and second hand smoke

When high priorities conflict professional discord can occur Religious freedom versus access to care faith based healthcare and the provision of contraceptives

7Balancing Personal & Professional ValuesDo nurses have the right to disqualify themselves from the profession when the misalignment of beliefs occurs?

Do nurses have the accountability to embrace the profession and fight for understanding and re-alignment?

It is seldom a SINGLE issue situation that would be easy!

8Balancing Personal & Professional ValuesWhat is your choice?

Embracing our profession Working toward understanding Respect for divergent opinions Collaborative dialogue

Standing on the sidelines letting others act?
