Medical ethics is primarily a field of applied ethics, the study of moral values and judgments as they apply to medicine. As a scholarly discipline, medical ethics encompasses its practical application in clinical settings as well as work on its history, philosophy, theology, and sociology.Medical ethics tends to be understood narrowly as an applied professional ethics, whereas bioethics appears to have worked more expansive concerns, touching upon the philosophy of science and issues of biotechnology. Still, the two fields often overlap and the distinction is more a matter of style than professional consensus. Medical ethics shares many principles with other branches of healthcare ethics, such as nursing ethics.Contents[hide]1 History2 Values in medical ethics 2.1 Autonomy2.2 Beneficence2.3 Non-Maleficence 2.3.1 Double effect2.4 Conflicts between autonomy and beneficence/non-maleficence 2.4.1 Euthanasia3 Informed consent4 Confidentiality5 Criticisms of orthodox medical ethics6 Importance of communication7 Control and resolution 7.1 Guidelines7.2 Ethics committees8 Cultural concerns 8.1 Truth-telling8.2 Online Business Practices9 Conflicts of interest 9.1 Referral9.2 Vendor relationships9.3 Treatment of family members9.4 Sexual relationships10 Futility11 Further reading12 See also 12.1 Reproductive medicine12.2 Medical research12.3 Famous cases in medical ethics13 Sources and references14 External links[edit] HistoryHistorically, Western
