The Medical Ethics of Caring
As a 21st century health care professional, some of your most challenging questions are not medical, but philosophical. For example, how do you allocate finite resources when human life is considered infinitely valuable? Unfortunately, there is no rule book that can make these decisions for you, but the responsibility is still in your hands. Ethics is not about formulating complex rules. It is about anticipating possible outcomes and choosing the one that is best for all concerned. By shifting the focus from rules to outcomes, ethics becomes an arena for which you are much better trained and prepared.
