Borderline Case: Ethics of Patient Care
For this discussion, you will be applying defining attributes to an actual patient case. Please listen to the NPR podcast, “If You Have Dementia, Can You Hasten Death As You Wished?” Additionally, review Wilkinson’s defining attributes (found in the Wilkinson (1997) reading in the Learning Materials section). See attachments.
Please respond to the following prompts:
1. Review Wilkinson’s (1997) defining attributes and describe how the NPR podcast, “If You Have Dementia, Can you Hasten Death As You Wished?” case story meets the definition of a borderline case.
2. Describe the ethical issues the case raises.
3. If it were changed to meet criteria for a model case, what ethical issues would come to the forefront?
