Reflecting on your practice problem and proposed research interventions what major biomedical principles (as listed below) are involved? Why is this principle important?
Practice Problems ( DIABETES MELLITUS ) IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU REVIEW THE LAST ASSIGNMENT DID IT REGARDING ETHICAL CONSIDERETIONS.
I have provided a brief description of the biomedical ethical principles There are many derivatives of these principles.
4 major biomedical principles:
Autonomy: generally meaning the patient has the ethical right to make decisions and act on them. Autonomy is acting with intentionality, understanding, and without influence. (Autonomy vs paternalism).
Non-Maleficence: Acting with the intention of doing no harm. In medical care (or nursing care) it is the adage “first do no harm”.
Beneficence: Acting with the intention of doing good/helping
Justice: There are various theories of justice: Justice involves the equitable distribution of resources. and has several different arguments that can be used in decision making. These include: each individual is treated equally; each according to one’s means/needs, each according to merit or contribution, each according to what society needs.
