Sample text

2 As a registered nurse, midwife or specialist community public health nurse, you must respect the patient or client as an individual. 1 You must recognise and respect the role of patients and clients as partners in their care and the contribution they can make to it. This involves identifying their preferences regarding care and respecting these within the limits of professional practice, existing legislation, resources and the goals of the therapeutic relationship. 2 You are personally accountable for ensuring that you promote and protect the interests and dignity of patients and clients, irrespective of gender, age, race, ability, sexuality, economic status, lifestyle, culture and religious or political beliefs.

Entry to the professional register also means that the nurse has the right to practise as an autonomous practitioner, but this has to be with the patients’ best interests at the core of professional practice. Professional self-regulation – that is the ability of the nursing profession to selfregulate or ‘control’ itself – becomes a reality when nurses embrace the ability to practise in an autonomous manner. Self-regulation can be seen as an unwritten contract between society and the nurse. Registered nurses are personally accountable for their practice.

Dworkin (1988) adds a moral element to the term and suggests it is about choosing a moral position and accepting responsibility for the kind of person that you are. Hendrick (2004) equates autonomy with: • • • • • integrity dignity independence self-assertion critical reflection There are two perspectives associated with autonomy – a descriptive aspect and a prescriptive aspect. MacDonald (2002) suggests that descriptive autonomy is the capacity for self-governance and prescriptive autonomy is respect for autonomy, for example not interfering with a person’s control over their own lives.
