Healthcare professionals are often faced with ethical dilemmas and challenges on a daily basis. In many healthcare organizations, ethical committees exist in order to assist staff and patients in ethical consultation, developing and/or revising policies pertaining to clinical ethics and hospital policy (Pearlman, 2013). According to Pearlman (2013) an ethical dilemma occurs when two courses of action may both provide an ethical outcome and are often due when conflict between ethical principles, such as autonomy, justice, nonmaleficence, exist or between principles and outcomes.
Think about a situation that you, as a healthcare professional, may approach a hospital ethics committee about (e.g., end of life care, organ donation, a provider not being truthful with a patient, etc.). What are some of the unique challenges that exist with the ethical dilemma you have chosen? How can that ethical dilemma you discussed conflict with one’s personal set of ethics?
There are several important sets of guidelines to govern ethical decision making in the healthcare industry: the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE) Code of Ethics, the National Center for Healthcare Leadership (NCHL) Competency Model, the American Organization of Nurse Executives (AONE), and others. Choose one of the models to frame your discussion response. Post a 3-4 paragraph response that addresses the following prompts:
Briefly explain an ethical dilemma that healthcare professionals may face (use your area of interest).
