I am putting up a series of excellent discussions about ethical/professional issues that could involve a medical student and you or a family member as a patient. Each discussion as a separate thread is based on the book Professionalism in Medicine : A Case-Based Guide for Medical Students. Cambridge:Cambridge University Press; 2010 and from the website “Professionalism in Medicine” prepared by Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia Pennsylvania. Each issue at the website is begun with a brief vignette, and then a brief video dramatization of the vignette and then followed by perspective commentaries by a medical student and followed by that of a faculty member. First go to the following link, read, view and then return and present the visitors to this thread your own view of the particular professional issue from the perspective of the patient: Principle of Patient Autonomy.
