Abstract

The draft code requires nurses and midwives to maintain clear professional boundaries with patients and their families, avoiding personal, emotional and sexual relationships. Maintaining these boundaries can be complex, but it helps to share difficult experiences with colleagues, reflecting on where the boundaries should sit.
