    Practising Virtue: A Challenge to the View That a Virtue Centred Approach to Ethics Lacks Practical Content.Ann Marie Begley - 2005 - Nursing Ethics 12 (6):622-637.
    A virtue centred approach to ethics has been criticized for being vague owing to the nature of its central concept, the paradigm person. From the perspective of the practitioner the most damaging charge is that virtue ethics fails to be action guiding and, in addition to this, it does not offer any means of act appraisal. These criticisms leave virtue ethics in a weak position vis-à-vis traditional approaches to ethics. The criticism is, however, challenged by Hursthouse in her analysis of (...)

    Guilty But Good: Defending Voluntary Active Euthanasia From a Virtue Perspective.Ann Marie Begley - 2008 - Nursing Ethics 15 (4):434-445.
    This article is presented as a defence of voluntary active euthanasia from a virtue perspective and it is written with the objective of generating debate and challenging the assumption that killing is necessarily vicious in all circumstances. Practitioners are often torn between acting from virtue and acting from duty. In the case presented the physician was governed by compassion and this illustrates how good people may have the courage to sacrifice their own security in the interests of virtue. The doctor's (...)

    Literature, Ethics and the Communication of Insight.Ann-Marie Begley - 1995 - Nursing Ethics 2 (4):287-294.
    The problems of exposing students to real life situations in which they can gain an insight into the dilemmas experienced by clients and staff are highlighted. The value of the Greek notion of catharsis (katharsis: a cleansing) is discussed and the use of literature is suggested as a means of providing students with vicarious experience of the real, but often inaccessible, situations in which nurses may have to make moral decisions.

    Beneficent Voluntary Active Euthanasia: A Challenge to Professionals Caring for Terminally Ill Patients.Ann-Marie Begley - 1998 - Nursing Ethics 5 (4):294-306.
    Euthanasia has once again become headline news in the UK, with the announcement by Dr Michael Irwin, a former medical director of the United Nations, that he has helped at least 50 people to die, including two between February and July 1997. He has been quoted as saying that his ‘conscience is clear’ and that the time has come to confront the issue of euthanasia. For the purposes of this article, the term ‘beneficent voluntary active euthanasia’ (BVAE) will be used: (...)

    Preparation for Practice in the New Millennium: A Discussion of the Moral Implications of Multifetal Pregnancy Reduction.Ann-Marie Begley - 2000 - Nursing Ethics 7 (2):99-112.
    This article approaches the problem of multifetal pregnancy reduction from a moral perspective. It is one of many complex moral issues arising from reproductive technology and is one with which midwives and nurses are faced more frequently with advancing technology. The work is intended to be used as an educational tool for those who prepare tomorrow’s nurses and midwives. The subject is discussed from three perspectives, the pregnant woman and her partner (clients), a midwife, and from a philosophical ethical perspective. (...)

    Exploring Moral Distress in Potential Sibling Stem Cell Donors.A. Begley & S. Piggott - 2013 - Nursing Ethics 20 (2):178-188.
    In relation to the phenomenon of moral distress, this article presents two original perspectives. First, the literature to date reflects a focus on moral distress in an occupational context. In this article, however, the impact of moral distress on siblings is explored. Moral distress is considered in a particular context, stem cell donation, but there are clear insights and implications for wider practice, particularly in life-threatening contexts and situations where live donation enhances the potential for survival. Second, the article represents (...)
