Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

For integrity to be preserved, safeguards must be developed and an environment that supports ethical practice fostered. Standards such as those promulgated by the JCAHO provide an important opportunity for nurses to create mechanisms to assure that diverse religious, cultural, and ethical beliefs of nurses are respected and upheld.
