Reflect: Take a deeper look at your own life and determine which experiences have inspired ethical and moral reasoning. Were there any huge influences in this process?
Write: For this discussion you will address the following prompts:
1) Explain what it means to be ethical as it relates to personal, academic, and professional growth.
2) Provide at least one ethical dilemma you have encountered, and describe how the issue was resolved.
( please incorporate this plot for this section/question or something close health care service related) An ethical dilemma I have encountered as a frontline health care worker happened about 8 years ago when a patient of mine who at the time 89 years old bed ridden with no chance of recovery requested that I help end her life. This was beyond the scope of my duties as a hemodialysis PCT. I respectfully declined the request and encourage her to speak to the social worker who is more skilled in that area of service.
3) Describe how your general education courses have influenced your ethical values.
