Nursing Ethics: What Lies Ahead? The Case of Bulgaria

Nursing Ethics 3 (1):69-72 (1996)

In Bulgaria, we are sharing a transition to a civic society and a market economy, which means transferring to new parameters of our culture. Many old customs based on coer cion, obedience and unacceptable interference are gradually dying out, and new princi ples tend to shape the way we live our collective lives. These include the ethics of partnership, which tend to create an assertion of individual rights and an affirmation of free will and autonomy, and within which the individual is protected in the pursuit of personal judgements. It is remarkable, however, that we have so much difficulty in talk ing about and identifying the most beneficial approaches for the achievement of the new design of our society. In this paper, I propose to illustrate the current crisis in nursing ethics with informa tion mainly from Bulgaria. However, I think that the problems and trends in the other Eastern European countries are similar
