Ashford 6: – Week 5 – Discussion 1
Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Reference the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.
After reading Chapter 5, you are now more aware that all professionals are required to behave ethically. For this discussion, you will examine exactly what that means with regard to health education.
- Describe the five ethical principles that are mentioned in your course text. For each principle, describe how it applies to health and health education.
- List and present the 10 steps of ethical decision making and create a scenario that illustrates the use of these steps.
- What are some ethical issues that may occur when providing health education? Are there any ways to ensure that professionals behave ethically?
- Using one of the settings learned earlier, create an ethical situation that may arise.
Guided Response: Read your classmates’ posts and respond to at least two of your peers by Day 7. In your responses, discuss whether you believe professionals behave ethically because they are paid to or because society sets this expectation.
