    Researching Lived Experience in Health Care: Significance for Care Ethics.Bernadette Dierckx de Casterlé, Sofie Tl Verhaeghe, Marijke C. Kars, Annemarie Coolbrandt, Marleen Stevens, Maaike Stubbe, Nathalie Deweirdt, Jeroen Vincke & Maria Grypdonck - 2011 - Nursing Ethics 18 (2):232-242.
    The aim of this article is to demonstrate the usefulness of qualitative research for studying the ethics of care, bringing to light the lived experience of health care recipients, together with the importance of methods that allow reconstruction of the processes underlying this lived experience. Lived experiences of families being approached for organ donation, parents facing the imminent death of their child and patients being treated using stem cell transplantation are used to illustrate how ethical principles are differentiated, modified or (...)

    Nursing and Euthanasia: A Review of Argument-Based Ethics Literature. [REVIEW]Toon Quaghebeur, Bernadette Dierckx de Casterlé & Chris Gastmans - 2009 - Nursing Ethics 16 (4):466-486.
    This article gives an overview of the nursing ethics arguments on euthanasia in general, and on nurses' involvement in euthanasia in particular, through an argument-based literature review. An in-depth study of these arguments in this literature will enable nurses to engage in the euthanasia debate. We critically appraised 41 publications published between January 1987 and June 2007. Nursing ethics arguments on (nurses' involvement in) euthanasia are guided primarily by the principles of respect for autonomy, nonmaleficence, beneficence and justice. Ethical arguments (...)

    Belgian Nurses' Views on Codes of Ethics: Development, Dissemination, Implementation.Ellen Verpeet, Bernadette Dierckx de Casterlé, Joke Lemiengre & Chris Gastmans - 2006 - Nursing Ethics 13 (5):531-545.
    The aim of this study was to explore how Belgian nurses view issues related to the development, dissemination and implementation of a code of ethics for nurses. Fifty nurses took part in eight focus groups. The participants stated that, on the whole, a code of ethics for nurses would be useful. They stressed that a code should be a practical and useful instrument developed by nurses for nurses, and that it should be formulated and presented in a practical way, just (...)

    Cancer Patients' Perceptions of the Good Nurse: A Literature Review.Leila Rchaidia, Bernadette Dierckx de Casterlé, Liesbeth De Blaeser & Chris Gastmans - 2009 - Nursing Ethics 16 (5):528-542.
    This article discusses findings from a mixed method literature review that investigated cancer patients’ perceptions of what constitutes a good nurse. To find pertinent articles, we conducted a systematic key word search of five journal databases (1998—2008). The application of carefully constructed inclusion criteria and critical appraisal identified 12 relevant articles. According to the patients, good nurses were shown to be characterized by specific, but inter-related, attitudes, skills and knowledge; they engage in person-to-person relationships, respect the uniqueness of patients, and (...)

    Nurses' Attitudes to Euthanasia: A Review of the Literature. [REVIEW]Charlotte Verpoort, Chris Gastmans, Nele De Bal & Bernadette Dierckx de Casterlé - 2004 - Nursing Ethics 11 (4):349-365.
    This article provides an overview of the scarce international literature concerning nurses’ attitudes to euthanasia. Studies show large differences with respect to the percentage of nurses who are (not) in favour of euthanasia. Characteristics such as age, religion and nursing specialty have a significant influence on a nurse’s opinion. The arguments for euthanasia have to do with quality of life, respect for autonomy and dissatisfaction with the current situation. Arguments against euthanasia are the right to a good death, belief in (...)

    Ethics Meetings in Support of Good Nursing Care: Some Practice-Based Thoughts.Bernadette Dierckx de Casterlé, Tom Meulenbergs, Lut van de Vijver, Anne Tanghe & Chris Gastmans - 2002 - Nursing Ethics 9 (6):612-622.
    The purpose of this article is to clarify both the role of nurses in ethics meetings and the way in which ethics meetings can function as a catalyst for good nursing care. The thoughts presented are practice based; they arose from our practical experiences as nurses and ethicists with ethics meetings in health care organizations in Belgium. Our reflections are written from the perspective of the nurse in the field who is participating in (inter)professional ethical dialogue. First, the difficulties that (...)

    A Relational Ethical Dialogue With Research Ethics Committees.Philip J. Larkin, Bernadette Dierckx de Casterlé & Paul Schotsmans - 2008 - Nursing Ethics 15 (2):234-242.
    The aim of this article is to take relational ethics concepts and apply them to the context of application to research ethics committees for approval to carry out research. The process of a multinational qualitative research application is described. The article suggests that a relational ethics approach can address two issues: how qualitative proposals are interpreted by research ethics committees and how this safeguards potentially vulnerable respondents. In relational terms, the governance of a research project may be enhanced by shared (...)

    How Do Ethnic Minority Patients Experience the Intercultural Care Encounter in Hospitals? A Systematic Review of Qualitative Research.Liesbet Degrie, Chris Gastmans, Lieslot Mahieu, Bernadette Dierckx de Casterlé & Yvonne Denier - 2017 - BMC Medical Ethics 18 (1):2.
    BackgroundIn our globalizing world, caregivers are increasingly being confronted with the challenges of providing intercultural healthcare, trying to find a dignified answer to the vulnerable situation of ethnic minority patients. Until now, international literature lacks insight in the intercultural care process as experienced by the ethnic minority patients themselves. We aim to fill this gap by analysing qualitative literature on the intercultural care encounter in the hospital setting, as experienced by ethnic minority patients.MethodsA systematic search was conducted for papers published (...)

    Empirical Ethics in Action: Lessons From Two Empirical Studies in Nursing Ethics.Bernadette Dierckx de Casterlé, Mieke Grypdonck, Nancy Cannaerts & Els Steeman - 2004 - Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy 7 (1):31-39.
    Despite the burgeoning of publications in nursing ethics, only more recently has empirical evidence on nursing ethics been published. How nursing ethics can be empirically studied as well as enriched by empirical data will be the focus of this paper. Two empirical studies will be briefly presented and their contribution to ethics discussed. The first one is a quantitative research project about nurses' ethical behavior in daily practice. Using an adapted version of Kohlberg's theory of moral development, this study tried (...)

    Nursing Students' Responses to Ethical Dilemmas in Nursing Practice.Bernadette Dierckx de Casterlé, Mieke Grypdonck, Magda Vuylsteke-Wauters & Piet J. Janssen - 1997 - Nursing Ethics 4 (1):12-28.
    In literature as well as in nursing practice a growing concern about nurses’ ethical competence can be observed. Based on the cognitive theory of moral development by Kohlberg, this research examined nursing students’ ethical behaviour in five nursing dilemmas. Ethical behaviour refers not only to the ethical reasoning of nursing students but also to the relationship between reasoning and behaviour. Kohlberg’s definition of morality was refined by adding a care perspective. The results show that the majority of students can be (...)

    'Because We See Them Naked' – Nurses' Experiences in Caring for Hospitalized Patients with Dementia: Considering Artificial Nutrition or Hydration (Anh).Els Bryon, Bernadette Dierckx de Casterlé & Chris Gastmans - 2012 - Bioethics 26 (6):285-295.
    The aim of this study was to explore and describe how Flemish nurses experience their involvement in the care of hospitalized patients with dementia, particularly in relation to artificial nutrition or hydration (ANH). We interviewed 21 hospital nurses who were carefully selected from nine hospitals in different regions of Flanders. ‘Being touched by the vulnerability of the demented patient’ was the central experience of the nurses, having great impact on them professionally as well as personally. This feeling can be described (...)

    Elderly Patients' and Residents' Perceptions of 'the Good Nurse': A Literature Review.Elisa Van der Elst, Bernadette Dierckx de Casterlé & Chris Gastmans - 2012 - Journal of Medical Ethics 38 (2):93-97.
    This article describes the findings of a mixed method literature review that examined the perceptions of elderly patients and residents of a good nurse in nursing homes, hospitals and home care. According to elderly patients and residents, good nurses are individuals who have the necessary technical and psychosocial skills to care for patients. They are at their disposal, promptly recognising the patients' needs. Good nurses like their job and are sincere and affectionate. They are understanding and caring. They do not (...)
