dc.description.abstractMedical decision making is complicated and requires a full understanding of the options being presented. It is easy as a practitioner to assume that a patient has capacity, when in fact they might not. Evidence indicates that frequently with the best intentions, health care practitioners allow people to make medical decisions when they do not understand the implications of that choice. I believe that this happens when practitioners feel that the patient is autonomously making a choice that promotes beneficence. This too creates an ethical dilemma, as it does not fully promote autonomy if the patient does not have capacity to make the decision. I believe that further reflection can help physicians understand what motivates their patient’s, and their own, decision making.
