AbstractThe article comments on the study by C. Grady and colleagues on ethics education for nurses and social workers. It mentions that Grady and colleagues' work is intriguing not only because of its direct findings, but also because it highlights two challenges which were inherent in studying ethics education. It emphasizes that effective research on outcomes in general and on ethics education depends on the ability to articulate a conceptual model.
