TOPIC: Refusal of Treatment
(theses are some ethical situations I would probably include in my paper; parents who refuse to get their children vaccinated; terminally ill cancer patients who refuse chemo and or radiation; or patients on life support should the family go against the doctors suggestions of a DNR order if there is no evidence of life without life support/ should the family follow the doctors recommendations . Also I would love the paper to include the 4 principles of ethics and ethical health care models and how they apply to the ethical issues included in the essay. )
Ethics refers to what is morally right or wrong; a standard of how one should behave. Morals are beliefs of what is correct and not correct based on our family, religion, and society influences. Although ethics are personal, they are also decided upon by professional or governmental organizations. Ethics can also be called “Shades of Gray” because there are often times when there is no clear right or wrong choice.
