Is your medical provider treating you ethically? Three primary ethical principles should govern your medical provider’s communication with you:
- Patient First (Beneficence) – ethical practitioners are committed to putting your needs before their own through caring about your whole person and disclosing any conflicts of interest.
- Do No Harm (Non-Malfeasance) – ethical practitioners help you prevent future health problems, explore the least-risky treatments first, and keep your private information completely confidential.
- Empowerment (Autonomy) – ethical practitioners respect your dignity and power to choose by providing all the information you need to make an informed decision about your healthcare.
CompassCare’s professional physicians and nurses are committed to upholding the highest ethical standards. We help turn fear into confidence by ensuring that you are respected, cared for, and well informed.
