This research project focuses on the conflicts that arise for the nursing staff working in Intensive Care Units (ICU); a clinical setting that is particularly sensitive to ethical dilemmas. The project validates a theoretical model for analysis, it develops a tool for exploring the conflicts that arise in IC and it examines the relationship between such events and the social, demographic and, professional variables in the clinical setting, in order to design strategies for preventing and dealing with such conflicts.
