Abstract

When we think about ethics in nursing, such things as “Do Not Resuscitate” (DNR) orders and euthanasia come to mind. However, in the information age, there are some often-overlooked ethical issues surrounding information and information systems. This article examines several information technology influences and their impact on the issues of ethics, integrity, and trust.
