For your assignment, search for a peer-reviewed article (preferably with a DOI number) that focuses on an ethical dilemma in the medical field concerning the case of Elizabeth Bouvia. (Elizabeth Bouvia was a mentally competent, young, quadriplegic woman who suffered from cerebral palsy, leaving her completely bedridden and dependent on others to perform all her activities of daily living. Despite having a college degree, she was financially unable to support herself, did not have a stable living situation, and relied on public assistance for all aspects of her care. In 1983, at age 26, she expressed a desire to end her life. Ms. Bouvia then attempted to accomplish this by self-starvation in a California public hospital, an act which was widely publicized in the media. A California court denied Ms Bouvia judicial assistance to starve herself to death and issued a court order allowing the hospital to commence force-feeding her by inserting a nasogastric tube). Based on the article you read, write an article critique that includes the following elements.
Summarize the article.
Explain the ethical dilemma presented in the article. The medical field is constantly challenged with
ethical dilemmas from research to patient end-of-life issues. (Utilitarianism, right-based, Duty-based, Justice based, Virtue based)
Explain how the ethical dilemma was or was not resolved. Support your response with examples of evidence of how it was or was not resolved.
Discuss which ethical decision-making model you would use to help make decisions for this issue. (The Blanchard -Peale three-step ethics model, the seven step decision model, or the Bernard Lo three-step clinical model.)
Your article critique must be at least two pages in length, not counting the title or reference pages. In addition to the article you select, you will need to support your paper with at least one additional reference.
Please make sure that the assignment is in the proper form of an article critique. Also, please make sure that the references are searchable and not from unreachable sites or from sites that they need to be bought from.
