Legislation and Ethical Issues in Healthcare

Health care legislation Health care in the 21st century is governed by a confusing array of rules, regulations, laws and ethical standards. Issues that involve confidentiality, informed consent and patient relationships can appear out of nowhere, even when health care workers have the best of intentions. What’s legal today might not be considered ethical, and there is the ever-present threat of being sued for negligence and malpractice. There are unresolved issues around doctor assisted dying that have yet to be worked out, while medical procedures considered ethical for adults might not be seen as ethical for minors. Here are the top five ethical issues that health care managers of today and tomorrow will be facing in the course of delivering responsible and compassionate patient care.

  • Ethical issues and mental health
  • Health Disparities & Community Research
  • Changing Attitudes about End of Life Care
  • Helen Stanton Chapple
  • Ethics in the outpatient setting
  • Physical Assisted Suicide and Euthanasia.
