In this article, the author will examine and discuss how the manager can practice in an ethical way, thereby enhancing their performance and day-to-day role. Codes of conduct are both legal and ethical frameworks which assist managers in knowing what is expected of them by their employers, service users, government and the wider public. What is meant by ‘ethics’ will be discussed before examining the ethical framework of Rowson (2006) applying this to the manager’s role. By following codes of conduct and thinking in an ethical way will enable the manager to ensure quality care is delivered and the best decisions are made for service users, staff and the wider community.
