Course Overview

The ethical codes contain guiding principles. These serve to help practitioners in their decisions and practice by a set of standards that are expected of a healthcare practitioner. Beneficence is striving to do well and to do the best for every patient. This recognizes that a practitioner has a duty of care to every patient and that paramount is the objective to do good so that every patient leaves the practice in a better state than when they entered, or at the very least, not in a worse condition. This requires balancing the risks and benefits of treatment and making decisions that will optimize the benefits and minimize the risks of harm. Respect for autonomy requires a practitioner to respect the choices and decisions that a patient makes about his/her health. This involves keeping the patients informed of their condition, treatment choices, and options so that decisions made are based on pertinent facts. Justice entails being fair to all patients in a way that transgresses legal justice. It includes deciding how much time is spent on a patient, how many and what types of resources are devoted to the treatment of that patient, and how this compares to the time and resources distributed to other patients.
