Ethics and Laws/Healthcare Organizations

Uploaded by :

A 3 page research paper/essay that discusses ethics and legality, which are concepts that are integrally related, but not necessarily synonymous, particularly within the scope of divergent cultural situations. In general, laws institutionalize what the majority of people in a culture recognize to be ethical conduct. However, what is considered to be ethical conduct can differ greatly between culture. Interpreting the subject of ethics, and particularly bioethics, within the framework provided by national laws that are not necessarily congruent is becoming increasingly problematic.
