ethical decisions. This can include medical facts such as prognosis, understanding the patient's
wishes, and therapeutic goals. Ethical reasoning requires content-based information, such as what
influences a patient`s preferences or perceptions. The physician can enquire about the socialeconomic circumstances or any prior health care experience, such as racial discrimination in care
