NURSING ETHICS – LECTURE 2
IEthics
Ethics is a very important branch of philosophy concerned with a
number of moral questions.
-What is the nature of morality?
-What are the important moral concepts and how should we
define them?
-What moral principles should guide our actions?
-Which actions are morally right and which are morally wrong?

There are two main approaches to ethics: (1) theoretical ethics and (2)
applied ethics.
(1) Theoretical ethics: examining the theories, models, and concepts that
should guide ethical inquiry.
-This involves trying to construct a theoretical framework to assess
the moral justification of actions.
-Theoretical ethics is thus, by definition, a normative enterprise.
-What norms, rules, or principles should govern the moral propriety of
actions?

(2) Applied ethics: assessing, by way of one or more theoretical
frameworks, the moral propriety of particular actions, behaviour, or
policies.
-We use our theoretical framework to help us determine which actions
are moral justified.
-Assuming the correctness of certain moral principles or rules, we
need to apply these principles or rules to decide what kinds of actions
and policies are ethically justified.

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
