Students are to choose ONE case study from those provided on the Assessment site in Learning@Griffith. Students are to choose one person/character in the case study and write this assignment from the professional position of that person. Students are then to use ONE ethical decision-making model from the literature provided to identify how they would determine the competing ethical dimensions or principles inherent in the case, what professional positions and values are demonstrated by key stakeholders, what resources would be required to assist a decision-making process, what alternative courses of action are available, and what decision should ultimately be made about what to do. Justification should be provided for the final decision. The assignment should conclude with a personal reflection on the dynamics of interdisciplinary professional ethics. NB: This assignment should be written in first person.
