ethics

posted by .

I need help getting started on this question:

In the healthcare field, different groups of healthcare professionals adhere to their own codes of ethics.

Using any resources available to you, research two different codes of ethics for any two groups of healthcare professionals. You can research groups such as nurses, physicians, and allied health professionals.

Compare and contrast the codes of ethics. What are the major similarities between the two codes, and what are the major differences?

Consider the issue of how to triage patients at the times when hospitals are overwhelmed as a result of a disaster situation. Use the codes of ethics from each of your two selected groups to explain how the dilemma could be resolved while adhering to the group’s codes of ethics.
