Abstract

Adults with Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) are a new and growing population of clients who pose a challenge to both medicine and nursing. An analysis of the literature has resulted in the development of a new conceptual framework utilizing the concept analysis of Quality of Life and Husted and Husted's ethical decision making in nursing in the care of the adult with CHD. Additionally, application of Husted and Husted's theory will be explored with a critical care case study.
