Lavelle H. Nursing Standard (RCN). 2008 Apr 2; 22(30): 26-29.
The author reflects on the significant association of dignity with the nursing profession. She claims that dignity could be realized by allowing patients to construct a personal narrative out of their own illness. She likewise states that the approach would allow them to develop their own ideas of medical care. She, however, admits the need for an adequate staff to accomplish the goal.
