Health and Medical Bioethics Discussion
working on a health and medical discussion question and need an explanation and answer to
help me learn.
Generally speaking, bioethics helps determine what is responsible by considering four key
principles: autonomy, beneficence, nonmaleficence, and justice. The principle of autonomy is
about respecting people and their free will. Beneficence and nonmaleficence are two sides of the
same coin: doing what is helpful, and not doing what is harmful. Justice, in this context, has to
do with being fair in giving out both benefits and risks.
Using your own words, answer the following questions:
1. How these models relate to one another varies with each circumstance
2. In your personal opinion which model may be the most important.
1. Ethic of Care Model
