Introduction to Clinical Ethics

by Mark Hughes, MD, MA
Clinical ethics is a subset of ethics that focuses on clinical medicine. The four basic clinical moral principles include respect for autonomy, non-maleficence, beneficence, and justice. It is essential to have an understanding of medical ethics in order to make clinical decisions. It is useful to have a problem-solving framework for an ethical dilemma. This framework can allow clinicians to approach a moral problem in a systematic manner. Medical training provides opportunities for clinicians to develop this "moral compass".
