Ethical Dilemma

Ethical Dilemma

In the written assessment students should describe the case-study containing an ethical dilemma. This should be no more than 200 words.  Make sure your dilemma is realistic.  Identify the ethical issues the dilemma raises – there will be more than one. Identify the different people involved, describe how each one might view the dilemma, and explain why they take this position. Different people might include patients, users, carers, family members, the general public, pressure groups, front-line professional workers, health and social care assistants, youth workers, service managers;

identify and discuss potential conflict(s) and points of agreement in terms of ethical arguments; consider how gender, ethnicity, religion, age, sexuality, etc might influence how people respond to the ethical dilemma. Consider how far relevant codes of professional conduct and law, as applied to the dilemma, help with arriving at a moral solution.
