How do the unique relationship between human
service organizations and the populations they serve impact ethical decisions? What are
some ethical dilemmas that occur in health care or human service organizations? Who do
you think has the greatest power to solve or prevent these dilemmas: organizational
leaders, federal or state bodies, or society as a whole? Explain your answer.

What kind of decisions must the workers make when confronted with patients/clients who don't take their advice? Think about the poor and mentally ill who can't afford or remember to take their medications? What about the overly obese or smokers or other addicts? What about the human services client who shares what little money she has with a drug addict?
