This paper revisits a 2003 publication in Nursing Philosophy: The need for accurate perception and informed judgement in determining the appropriate use of the nursing resource: hearing the patient's voice. The author suggests that the basic ideas and focus of this 16-year-old paper are still topical and relevant in considerations of nursing care. However, it is also suggested that greater attention to the importance of the nurse-patient relationship in considerations of resource allocation, and potential rationing of nursing care, would have strengthened the original paper.
