APPLYING ETHICAL PRINCIPLES

Prepare

For this assignment, you will develop a solution to a specific ethical dilemma faced by a heath care professional. Consider the ethical dilemma the health care professional is faced with in the selected case study.

  • Identify which case study you selected and briefly summarize the facts surrounding the case study. Note: The case study may not supply all of the information you may need. In such cases, you should consider a variety of possibilities and infer potential conclusions. Please be sure to identify any speculations that you make.
