I guess I need a starting point or some points to write about I'm not really sure how to go about this assignment. Thanks Niki
First, brainstorm the answers to these questions.
Make sure you understand the meaning of "autonomy."
Who are the "stakeholders?" The patient? his/her family? medical personnel?
What does your book say about their codes of ethics? I suspect they basically talk about the happiness, freedom, medical care, and dignity of the patient.
This should get you started.
do you think that the agency ethics statement was patterned after the national association code of ethics
