Ethical Issues in Medicine
The professional obligation to promote the health and wellbeing of the members of society is central to the legitimacy and integrity of the profession.
For valid informed consent to exist, patients have to understand the information physicians give them about a proposed treatment or procedure.
Clinicians can manage their emotions and behaviors to meet the challenges of working productively with sometimes abrasive and argumentative patients.
Identifying a patient's preferences and goals leads to a care plan that can reflect those goals, and this may improve patient satisfaction.
