Consider the “Four Topics Approach” (or Four Box method) to ethi

Consider the “Four Topics Approach” (or Four Box method) to ethical decision making on page 61, Table 2.1 in Butts (below).  Apply this model to a challenging situation in your nursing career that required you to consider the ethical dimensions of the patient case and the role you played in providing care. Specifically apply and address the questions within each topic area as they pertain to your situation. In your conclusion, discuss the impact of the Four Topics process. Did applying these principles shape your decision making in any way?  Does this seem like a valid process for you to apply in your practice?  Your paper should be 1-2 pages. Adhere to APA formatting throughout, and cite any outside sources you may use. Review the rubric for further information on how your assignment will be graded.
