Whistleblowing Virtual Issue

Virtual Issue
Watch Roger Watson introduce the Virtual Issue on Whistleblowing here

Events over the past few years emanating from the Mid-Staffordshire National Health Service Trust in the UK and culminating in the Francis Report demonstrate that mechanisms, existing at the time of the terrible events in Mid-Staffordshire, clearly did not work. Among the many areas investigated for the Francis Report there is praise for named whistleblowers and surprise that more people did not come forward, despite policies designed to protect them. But what is like to be a whistleblower and what are the ethical implications?

In this virtual issue we make available three JAN papers: one from the UK on the ethics of whistleblowing; and two from Australia; one on what nurses who whistleblow think about what their actions will achieve; and one on then experiences of being a whistleblower.
