Code of Ethics for Nurses in Australia
Developed under the auspices of Australian Nursing and Midwifery Council, Australian College of Nursing, Australian Nursing Federation

Introduction
This Code of Ethics for Nurses in Australia has been developed for the nursing profession in Australia. It is relevant to all nurses at all levels and areas of practice including those encompassing clinical, management,education and research 1 domains. This Code is framed by the principles and standards set forth in the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights, International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights; the World Health Organization’s Constitution and publication series entitled Health and Human Rights; and the United Nations Development Programme Human Development Report 2 2004: Cultural liberty in today’s diverse world. In considering this Code and its companion, the Code of Professional Conduct for Nurses in Australia, it should be borne in mind that they are designed for multiple audiences: nurses; nursing students; people requiring or receiving nursing care; the community generally; employers of nurses; nursing regulatory authorities; and consumer protection agencies. It is also noteworthy that the concepts of ‘ethics’ and ‘morality’ are substantially the same and have been used interchangeably throughout this Code. This Code outlines the nursing profession’s commitment to respect, promote, protect and uphold the fundamental rights of people who are both the recipients and providers of nursing and health care. It is supported by, and should be read in conjunction with, the Code of Professional Conduct for Nurses in Australia and the National Competency Standards for the Registered Nurse, National Competency Standards for the Enrolled Nurse and National Competency Standards for the…...

...According to my experiences, as an Indonesian, I lived in the city, so the health quality and services are more available for everyone. However, if I compare between city and country side, I can see much difference between them. In the country side, many people suffer and died from inadequate of health care systems. Furthermore, there are another reasons for this, for example lack of facilities and equipment to do operation or surgery and also can be low income cause some people tend to stay at home rather than go to city to spend much money to get a better treatment . On the other hand, in the city, there are many hospitals and also have full of equipment to do big operation. Yet, they tend to have bad lifestyle diseases such as obesity, diabetes and heart attack because of their daily food. My father has passed away because of heart attack. The reason is He did not really care about his health condition; he smokes and eats everything that he wants. I think in Indonesia, people in the country side are healthier because of their good lifestyle diet. They eat food from their farm which is more natural and no junk foods. Besides, the environment is better than city which is many trees and fewer vehicles if we compare with city which is full of pollutions. For Australia, I know about their culture and lifestyle roughly. I can see that many people have party during weekend and some people do every night in a week in which way they drink alcohol and worse thing is they have a......

...Prior to this subject, HLSC120, I had had no encounters with sociology and hence had a limited understanding as to what it it pertained to and why it was studied. The video created by Steele (Three Minute Sociologist, 2009), as referenced in eModule 1, asserts that sociology considers not just the individual, but their interaction with others and the social forces acting on them. Viewing a given situation from a sociological perspective is like “looking from the top down”, taking myself out of the picture and assessing all the factors interplaying to create the end result. I found this to be particularly noteworthy, as I often fall prey to assessing a person’s health leve, particualry in the case of lifestyle diseases, as being a result of an individual’s own personal short comings. However after using this approach to further develop my initial analysis of the question using Willis’ (Germov, 2014, p.7-8) sociological imagination template and its associated factors; historical, cultural, structural, critical, I was able to better consider the interplay of these factors producing a person’s level of health. In particular, develop the awareness that people are inevitably products of their own society and their capacity to attain good health is ultimately limited to the social factors that surround them. Considering the example of obesity and its rising prevalence in developed countries, as a result of my high school studies I understand these nations to have a history of......

...Good afternoon everyone, my name is and this is Today we are going to be discussing with you culture shock within Australia and how and why people who arrive in Australia from diverse countries, cultures and traditions are often affected and how they can be helped to feel culturally safe. We will explore the history of immigration within Australia and how it has developed over the years and why majority of people who come to Australia may experience culture shock. We will then discuss what we can do as a nation to make these people feel culturally safe within our country. Immigration is very popular within our country with thousands of people coming to and from Australia every year. Although many people seem to believe that Australia is the halfway point between the UK and the USA they seem to always not prepare themselves for what Australia has in store for them and how culturally diverse we are. Immigration has been common in Australia for over 50,000 years. Beginning with the initial human migration to the continent, when the ancestors of Australian aborigines arrived via the islands of maritime southeast and New Guinea. From the early 17th century onwards, the continent experienced the first coastal landings and exploration by European explorers, the convict transportation from Britain. From 1793 and 1850 nearly 200,000 free settlers chose to migrate to Australia to start a new life. Then came the gold rush from the 1850’s and by 1901 the Chinese were the third......
