Assignment Description & Rubric: The student will develop a Concept Map. The student will identify an ethical dilemma regarding a vulnerable patient. The student will analyze the issue, provide a diagram of the attributes of the ethical issue, and provide a summary. Each diagram will need:
1 central concept/description of the problem (i.e. family insisting on aggressive care at end of life)
4 related concepts/reasons for the problem (ie. fear, guilt, need for control, lack of knowledge)
4 connectors or reasons the related concepts/reasons link to the central problem (i.e family insistence on aggressive care links to guilt because the family members have a sense of responsibility to do everything possible)
1 interrelationship that connects all 4 (i.e. poor coping connects to guilt, fear, lack of knowledge, and need for control)
1 interrelationship that connects are least two others (i.e. religious beliefs might be the reason for the family to have fear and guilt).
Provide a summary description to explain the above bullet points in approximately 500 words. A sample is provided below (this is a very cursory concept map and creativity is acceptable to make it your own).
