Description

Part I – Review the following scenarios of medical deception and rank them with commentary regarding appropriate behavior, if ever, by a physician. Include at least 1 professional resource you used when ranking the behaviors. 1. A physician intentionally submits faulty information to an insurance company in an attempt to help a sick patient pay for needed healthcare services. 2. A physician recognizes the patient has psychosomatic symptoms and prescribes a placebo pill in hopes that the emotional relief of the placebo will help the patient recover (thus saving the patient from possible treatments which would be more invasive and/or extensive). 3. A physician does not provide full disclosure of a surgical procedure because he/she suspects the patient is not emotionally stable enough to handling all the details of the surgery, treatment and recovery. Part II – Review the following scenarios and rank them with commentary regarding a physician’s ethics. Include at least 1 professional resource you used when ranking physician ethics. 1. Physicians accept pharmaceutical perks if they recommend a specific drug for treatment. 2. When prescribing pain medication, some physicians may “undertreat” a patient if they sense their patient may have a propensity for addiction. 3. A physician treating a patient with a terminal illness fails to disclose secondary ailments/diseases which may arise (in an attempt to protect the patient’s emotional stability and will to fight). Part III – Recount an occasion from your personal experience of being lied to/misled by a health care clinician and, in retrospect, comment on the correctness of this decision. If this never happened in your life, outline a scenario you have heard about where deceit was part of a health care decision. Comment on whether or not this deception was beneficial to the patient. (This is the only section of the paper that will include any personal references). Part IV – Provide a rationale (in terms of biblical commandments, guidelines, or inferences) on whether or not a Christian clinician should deceive a patient. Be sure to provide clear, biblical support for your rationale.
