Applying the Four Principles: Case Study

Part 1: Chart (60 points)

Based on the “Healing and Autonomy” case study, fill out all the relevant boxes below. Provide the information by means of bullet points or a well-structured paragraph in the box. Gather as much data as possible.


Medical Indications

Beneficence and Nonmaleficence

Patient Preferences


Medical indications refer to the subjective and objective deductions of a patient’s psychological or physical health (Björk, Lynöe, &Juth, 2016). This information is used in determining the most reasonable diagnosis and interventions in treating the patient. Medical indications are directly related with the principles of beneficence and non-maleficence. It is argued that a medical intervention is medically indicated only when the attainable health improvement and possible side effects are sufficiently large and sufficiently small, respectively(Björk, Lynöe, &Juth, 2016). I The principle of autonomy protects a patient’s right to make their own medical decisions (Katz & Webb, 2016). At times, as is the case here, a patient’s medical decision may conflict with the physician’s recommendation for best course of action. In the case of pediatric patients, parents or guardians are entrusted with the surrogate decision makers, especially in cases where the child lacks a mental capacity to make an informed consent or exercise informed decision making(Katz & Webb, 2016).
