SAP and ERP: A Beginners Guide
Healthcare professionals always aim to do the right thing for their patients. But the reality of medicine is complex. And situations arise where those with good intentions may not agree on the right course of action. Ethical dilemmas related to patient care involving medical, psycho-social, ethical, and spiritual challenges arise often. The question facing many healthcare professionals is how will you choose to balance the basic ethical principles, so your patients receive the best care in any situation?
There are four essential principles of medical ethics. Each addresses a key issue that arises in the interaction between healthcare professionals and patients. The principles address the issue of fairness, honesty, and respect for individual people.
Topics that clash with the core principles of medical ethics such as autonomy can be seen in cases for and against abortion, conflict of interest in asymmetric knowledge between medical professional and patient and physician assisted suicide. If we respect autonomy, can we deny a patient’s request to die? Should doctors, traditionally committed to prolonging life, be involved in assisted suicide? How can providers honour the conflicting requirements of non maleficence, beneficence, and autonomy at the same time with this issue?
