Scholar Teaches Nursing Ethics in Lebanon and India

KIE Senior Research Scholar Dr. Carol Taylor was invited to participate in Lebanon’s inaugural National Nursing Ethics Conference, “Nursing and Healthcare Ethics: Making a Difference for Patients” (January 13 and 14, 2012), hosted by the Faculty of Medicine of the Salim El-Hoss Bioethics and Professionalism Program at the American University of Beirut.

This conference brought together clinical nurses, nurse administrators, nurse educators, social workers, and other health care professionals from across Lebanon to provide education and a forum for dialogue on important topics on nursing ethics and health care. As a key participant of this ground-breaking conference, Dr. Taylor delivered four presentations on ethical concepts, ethical theories, case studies, and standards, including “A Model of Professional Care.”

After Lebanon, Dr. Taylor participated in a series of meetings and seminars arranged by Wolters Kluwer Health in cities around India, including Delhi, Ludhiana, Kochi, and Chennai. Dr. Taylor traveled to the four cities and participated in one-day seminars, held January 16-20, aimed at considering current challenges and future trends in nursing education and practice. Each of the scheduled programs included a talk by Dr. Taylor entitled “Emerging Trends in Nursing Education & Practice,” and a session featuring her seminal volume, Fundamentals of Nursing, co-authored with Carol Lillis, Priscilla LeMone, and Pamela Lynn.
