At some point during the review process feedback was sought from all AUSIT members and from representatives of all areas of the T&I industry.

Concern for clarity, use of plain English language, culturally informed wording and inclusion, and the national nature of a Code of ethics for midwives in Australia guided both its format and focus. It was also considered important that the Code speak to individuals and provide guidance on moral character and virtues, ethical values, and professional and moral obligations: that is, when we enter a profession we take on the values of that profession. It is also vital that the Code meet the needs of other audiences who need to be informed of the moral standards of midwifery care including the community, regulators, educators, students and researchers.

As a trustee of policy owners’ savings, a life insurance company has the responsibility to safeguard its integrity and credibility. In the business of life insurance, the vital ingredient is trust: trust of the policy owners in the safety of their savings and confidence in the integrity and professional conduct of life insurers. The policy owner’s trust placed on the managers of life insurance companies involves a heavy responsibility. They owe it to their policy owners to ensure that their institutions are professionally managed and soundly based. The employees of the life insurance company, thus, must be seen to conduct their business with the highest level of integrity. While life insurers may be guided by certain informal, time-tested and generally accepted code of ethics to attain the level of conduct expected of them, today’s insurance operations require that these ethical rules be codified and issued as written guidelines in order to promote and maintain a uniform ethical standard.

Statements that describe activities and attributes of nurses in this code of ethics and its interpretive statements are to be understood as normative or prescriptive statements expressing expectations of ethical behavior. The Code of Ethics for Nurses also expresses the ethical ideals of the nursing profession and is, thus, both normative and aspirational. While this Code articulates the ethical obligations of all nurses, it does not predetermine how those obligations must be met. In some instances nurses meet those obligations individually; in other instances a nurse will support other nurses in their execution of these obligations; and at other times those obligations can and will only be met collectively. The Code of Ethics for Nurses addresses individual as well as collective nursing intentions and requires each nurse to demonstrate ethical competence in professional life.
