Ce guide d'exercice est une collaboration de trois ordres professionnels : Collège des médecins du Québec, Ordre des infirmières et infirmiers du Québec et l'Ordre des pharmaciens du Québec. Il propose les normes à suivre pour effectuer une aide médicale à mourir (AMM). Il se veut un guide pour les médecins et les autres professionnels de la santé ou des services sociaux dans l'exercice de leur pratique, tout en respectant l'esprit de la Loi concernant les soins de fin de vie. Ce guide d'exercice cible la population des personnes majeures et aptes, les seules pour qui l'aide médicale à mourir est autorisée par la Loi. Le document traite aussi de la question de l'objection de conscience des professionnels de la santé en lien avec l'AMM.

Ce guide est pour l’usage exclusif des infirmières.

Self-Study Guide to the Code of Ethics and Other Legal and Ethical Considerations for Quebec Nurses

Leprohon, Judith; Truchon, Sylvie et Roger, Nicole

2010

Produced with the financial support of the Ministère de l'Immigration et des Communautés culturelles, this Self-Study Guide is designed to support the professional integration of Internationally Educated Nurses (IEN). It will help them understand the links between the Code of Ethics of Nurses and other legal and ethical considerations for nursing practice as well as the role of Quebec nurses, in particular with regard to their professional independence. Given the educational approach used in this guide, which allows for a gradual integration of this knowledge through a variety of role-playing exercises, it may also be useful for Quebec nursing students, to help them learn how to apply this knowledge in their professional practice.

The guide is divided into three sections. The first covers the Code of Ethics of Nurses and looks more specifically at the professional relationship, professional independence and conflicts of interests. The second section deals with other legal considerations, with an emphasis on clients' rights and nurses' professional liability. Lastly, the third section addresses other ethical considerations and takes an overall approach, so that the nurse can take into account the Code of Ethics of Nurses and other legal and ethical considerations when making decisions regarding her professional conduct in different situations.
