Provision 1. Affirming Health through Relationships of Dignity and Respect


There is, perhaps, no better place to begin a discussion of ethics in nursing than with attention to the momentous concepts of compassion and human dignity. Because of their magnitude and central importance to nursing, it warrants dwelling a moment on these concepts of compassion, suffering, and human dignity. That compassion responds to suffering is to be expected, as the word itself joins together the Latin com- (meaning together with) and pati (meaning to suffer), thus “to suffer with” another.1 Sharing the same root, the patient, also from the Latin pati—meaning to suffer or to endure affliction is the subject of compassion.2 This relationship between compassion and suffering has been a topic of intense reflection for millennia in both religious and philosophical literature.
