The model was used as an organizing framework to understand the factors that affect the decision to seek care.
Below are brief descriptions of several research studies. Suggest some ethical dilemmas that are likely to emerge for each.
The dilemma would be whether to disclose the identity of the rape perpetrator in an ongoing clinical case.
The ethical dilemma would be whether to allow fathers to be present in the delivery room upon the wife’s request.
The dilemma would be whether to divulge information regarding the source of heroin to the police.
The ethical dilemma would be whether to allow a guardian to make a medical decision that would potentially harm the patient, such as the refusal of treatment.
The ethical dilemma would be whether to impose a course of treatment to a non-cooperating patient.
The ethical dilemma would be whether to use human or non-human subjects to test the effect of the drug.
