Building upon these previously identified examples of modern and challenging healthcare issues, which demand more complex ethical solutions, explain how the following question(s) relate to the stated healthcare issue (i.e. autonomy vs. justice or autonomy vs. beneficence). Use an outside source (i.e. newspaper or journal article) which outlines the healthcare changes/trends/issues that you’ve identified, as well as explaining your reasoning for one or more of the following question(s):

 

  1. Is beneficence a more complex principle than nonmaleficence with regard to your posited example?
  2. Is respecting the autonomy of the patient equally as important as respecting the autonomy of healthcare staff and administrators with regard to your posited example?
  3. Is applying the principle of justice to the resolution of administrative problems more complicated than just doing “what is fair” with regard to your posited example?
