Who Decides? The Ethics of Clinical Medicine

Daniel Groll, PhD

It is common place for patient's to have the right to make decisions about their own care.  But why is this so?  And what can healthcare providers do when the patient is unable to make a decision, has made a decision on the basis of faulty information, or seems to be making a poor decision?  Using an episode of House as our jumping off point, we'll explore these questions in the hopes of gaining some understanding of the basic principles that (ought to) guide decision-making in medicine.
