Nurses Grant Profile
Nurses provide nearly all of the bedside care for patients at IU Health Methodist Hospital. Unlike other healthcare workers, including physicians, nurses spend eight to 10 hours at a time at the bedside with their patients. Common moral dilemmas, such as whether to continue life-prolonging intensive medical treatments in the face of devastating illness, therefore affect nurses in ways not experienced by other providers.
To help nurses learn how to deal with the challenges these dilemmas pose for them, the Charles Warren Fairbanks Center for Medical Ethics has developed the Fairbanks Program in Nursing Ethics, with start-up costs funded by a grant from Methodist Health Foundation.
