The four ethical principles of health care

This discussion board forum will focus on last week’s reading and listening assignments. You can opt to discuss the four ethical principles of health care, Chapter 1 of the textbook, Public Health Ethics: Global Cases, Practice and Content, strategies for improving reading comprehension, questions to ask when examining a position, propaganda, or the Introducing Believed pod cast that was assigned.

The purpose of this assignment is to help you understand and apply the 4 ethical principles that are used in medical ethics. You will be asked to read a case study, which involves an actual patient who has been admitted for treatment at your hospital or clinic. This case study will give you some insight into how these principles can affect real patients. It may also provide you with ideas about what kind of decisions need to be made when caring for patients. In addition, it will allow you to practice applying the principles by discussing them as they relate to the case study.
