From the Paper:

"Austin's (2001) thesis is that globalization has profoundly changed nursing ethics because of the shift to a global frame of reference as opposed to an international one. We now live in a global community with entirely new issues from the past. As a result of living in a global village, we experience a new immediacy that essentially erases political borders. "We watch war, famine, epidemics, and the sufferings of the poor a continent away 'live' from our homes" (Austin, 2002, p. 2). Such immediacy changes the scope of our moral concern. The purpose of the article is to demonstrate the implications of this alteration in the scope of moral concern."
