Full recordShow full item record
AbstractEthics is increasingly being included in the training curriculum for health-care professionals. However, debate continues around the appropriate content of ethics courses for such students and the most relevant teaching approaches which will enable students to apply their ethical knowledge in clinical settings. At a time when health-care professionals are starting to collaborate more closely in multidisciplinary teams, it is appropriate to explore the ethical values held by different groups of health professionals. This study sought to ascertain the ethical views and knowledge which medical, dental and nursing students have at the commencement of their training, to establish their opinions on the most important areas of ethical debate in contemporary health care and to examine their ethical reasoning in response to a series of vignettes. Students gave detailed answers to the questionnaire and the data they provided furnishes useful material for those designing and teaching ethics courses.

But What IS the 'Right Thing'?: Ethics and Information Systems in the Corporate DomainSmith, H. Jeff (AIS Electronic Library (AISeL), 2008-02-08)Information systems executives, and other executives, are often prodded to "do the right thing" when they face ethical quandaries. But how do they determine what is "right" ethically, especially when the ethical quandaries occur in the corporate domain? Some individuals rely solely on their own emotions, but they often have a hard time convincing rational thinkers to embrace their position. Other individuals rely on traditional philosophical theories, but this approach is seldom optimal in the corporate domain because the traditional philosophical theories do not specifically address the corporate setting. However, two theories do address ethical quandaries in the private sector: stockholder theory and stakeholder theory. This article discusses these two theories. Stockholder theory holds that executives should resolve ethical quandaries by taking actions that maximize the long-term profits to stockholders without violating the law or engaging in fraud or deception. Stakeholder theory claims that executives should resolve ethical quandaries by balancing stakeholder interests without violating the rights of any stakeholder. These theories are explored by first applying them to a specific real-world quandary: Blockbuster Video's reported plans to market its customer lists. Then the theories are applied to several other current quandaries. Finally, the article explores action steps for applying each theory.
