Portfolio Entry 1

Ethical vignette (scenario situation).  Reflect on your everyday practice and try to identify a situation which represented an ethical problem or dilemma. The situation may also involve relevant legal and/or professional issues which it may be appropriate to address.

The chosen situation should be adapted on the basis of the work you have already done for the formative assessment (please ensure you maintain confidentiality/privacy at all times and do not use any patient identifiers).

Portfolio Entry 2

Learning Outcomes 2, 3 and 4 will be addressed by discussing, analysing and evaluating the research and evidence base that informs the discussion related to the vignette/scenario from an ethical standpoint taking into account relevant legal and/or professional issues as appropriate and with reference to supporting academic literature.

When planning your report section, it may be helpful for you to consider the situation in relation to each participant e.g. the nurse, patient, relatives and other healthcare professionals as appropriate.

In your discussion it will be important to consider the law and ethical issues. We recommend that you use the bioethical principles as your ethical framework and use should also be made of the philosophical theories of   Deontology  utilitarianism and values-based care as appropriate.

Your discussion must be supported with academic evidence.
