dc.description.abstract Tobacco use causes significant morbidity and mortality in persons with mental health conditions and psychiatric mental health nurses are in a position to provide interventions that can help them to quit smoking. Unfortunately, there has been minimal progress made by psychiatric mental health nurses in delivering smoking cessation interventions that have been effective in reducing the number of people who smoke. Given the high rate of tobacco use by persons with mental health issues, it is important to explore how psychiatric mental health nurses make ethical decisions about caring for their patients who smoke. Very few studies have looked at psychiatric mental health nurses' ethical decisions related to patients and smoking.
