Advocacy has historically been a core function of nurses. We are called upon in our Code of Ethics to advocate for safe, quality care for all patients and communities. The presentation will meet the assembly's theme by exploring the impact of the changing environment on nurse advocacy. The presentation will also meet the 'Ethics' core function of FNA through linking patient advocacy to the Code of Ethics for Nursing and exploring our ethical duty to be patient advocates.
