CHRISTIAN NARRATIVE ON APPLYING THE FOUR PRINCIPLES OF BIOMEDICAL ETHICS 2 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 Autonomy Medical indications are crucial during the diagnosis of a patient since doctors rely on the clinical data in determining the severity of the health condition as well as prescribing the best treatment for a positive outcome. Beneficence in healthcare refers to taking actions that have the best intentions in mind. However, Nonmaleficence refers to ensuring that the actions do not cause any harm. From the case study, James parents’ actions were fully for his best interest although the medical indications showed that his condition would worsen if no immediate treatment was given. Furthermore, they showed great nonmaleficence by coming back to the hospital when his condition only worsened According to Beever, (2016), autonomy implies to every individual having an inherent right to make their own choices.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
