    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.
