Name Professor Title Date Medical Ethics Health professionals are bound by medical ethics. There are ethical principles that apply to medical ethics. The ethical principles are justice, beneficence, non-maleficence, and autonomy. An ethical medical practice must respect all the four ethical principles. These principles ensure that patients make informed decisions, privacy is guaranteed, and no medical practice that harms the patient or any other person in society. “Chapter 6” explains how ethical principles apply to medical ethics, challenges of informed consent and self-determination, evaluation of ethical issues in physician-assisted death and euthanasia.

Doctors are not supposed to engage in a practice that may cause harm to the patient. In other words, Physicians are expected to help improve the state of others. This is one of the medical ethics that relies on beneficence ethical
