Title: Ethics


1
Ethics Professionalism
  • Perspectives For New Respiratory Care Students

2
Ethics
  • Philosophy
  • Philo love of
  • Sophia wisdom

3
  • Ethics is a branch of the love of wisdom
  • Wisdom a systematic, thoughtful, reasoned, and
    sustained look at
  • beauty aesthetics
  • existence ontology
  • knowing epistemology
  • right thing to do ethics

4
  • The right thing to do
  • Mainly Western thinkers, like
  • John Mills
  • utilitarianism
  • Immanuel Kant
  • Non-utilitarian, absolute, universal principles

5
Health Care or Medical Ethics
  • Relatively new in the broader field of Philosophy
  • Is more applied, less theoretical
  • Began with questions regarding
  • Death (breathing? Heart? Brain activity?)
  • Technological advances, in neonatology, open
    heart surgery, the ICU

6
Strategies
  • A competent patient (beware of definition)
  • capacitated vs incapacitated
  • Informed consent
  • Remember--it is a process, not a signed paper
  • Advance directives
  • Living will
  • Durable power of attorney for health
  • Best judgment cases

7
  • Best judgment decision making
  • Children not competent now, but will become
    competent
  • Mentally retarded not competent now, and will
    never be competent

8
Ethics and Professionalism
  • How should we act?
  • Individually?
  • Professionally?
  • Where do we look?
  • The Law?
  • Code of Ethics
  • Protocol manuals, lawyers judgment?

9
Why the Dilemma?
  • Because
  • We are individuals
  • We enter Respiratory Care with our own
    experiences, needs, values, expectations, and
    aspirations

10
Professional
  • The challenge of becoming a respiratory care
    professional is
  • Accepting and participating in a common
    (collective) behaviors
  • A common set of values and actions
  • These establish group identity that is recognized
    by others

11
Professionalprofess
  • To affirm, avow
  • What makes a professional?
  • On a scale of 1-10, with 10 being most
    professional, rank
  • Postal worker, teacher, car mechanic, computer
    sales person, physician, lawyer
  • Mastery of set of knowledge and skills that sets
    one apart from others

12
  • With specialized knowledge and skills, society
    grants privileges and autonomy (self-govern) to
    individual and to the group
  • You are expected to self-regulate and police
    yourselves
  • Another word for this is accountability

13
Other Expectations
  • Established standards of practice
  • Ensure maintenance of knowledge and skills
    through continuing education
  • Research and publish
  • License
  • Codes of ethics
  • Codes of behavior

14
Professional Ethics
  • Common/collective behavior about the right thing
    to do
  • No room for individual (personal) values
  • Commitment is to the group-the collective
    behavior and common response to ethical
    situations
  • Commitment to each other first

15
Collective
  • Failure of one individual to meet expectations of
    professionalism results in the condemnation of
    the entire profession
  • Now, on to the case of the Jehovahs Witness and
    blood transfusion. . .
