No single event created bioethics. Instead, a cascade of events created the discipline and changed healthcare decision making. This course provides an overview of the history of bioethics as it applies to healthcare and nursing in the U.S. Describing the historical events and forces that brought the bioethics movement into being, this module helps nurses understand the concepts, theories and principles that are its underpinnings.
