Ethical decision making is a process of choosing and evaluating given alternatives in a way that is consistent to the ethical principles. According to Corey 1998, decision making should follow this process; identifying the problem, identifying potential issues involved, reviewing relevant ethical guidelines, knowing relevant laws and regulations, obtaining consultation, considering probable course of action, listing courses of action and eventually choosing the best course of action.Ethical dilemmas on the other hand also known as moral dilemmas are situations in which there are situations to be dealt with and the options to be chosen do not solve in ethically acceptable fashion. The dilemma thus assumes that decisions made will be after abiding by societal norms, codes of law or religious teachings. Ethical dilemma situations include personal friendships, societal dilemma and information access.
