Professional Ethics


About the Series

Traditional ideas of professions and professional conduct have been challenged by recent social, political and technical changes. This has resulted in the development of an ethical code of conduct which attempts to formalize values and standards for each profession. This series examines critically and constructively the questions raised by the implementation of a professional code of conduct. Individual volumes consider issues relevant to particular professions including: nursing, the food industry, journalism and the media and business.
