Nurse-Midwife and scientist: Stuck in the middle?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

1 Scopus citations


The nurse-midwife and scientist share similar ethos (fundamental attitudes that guide action); yet, in their respective professional roles, ethos can translate into actions that appear discordant. Discord can lead to resolution, when examined through the primary principles of ethical conduct: autonomy, beneficence, nonmalfeasance, and justice.
