Week 11 discussion – ethical challenges
This week’s readings discuss a transition in the role of the health services manager. One of the implications of this transition is moving from working in a relatively simple environment to a more complex environment. Managers will need to balance the needs and interests of individuals, the organization, and the larger community. In doing this, the manager will face a variety of ethical issues.
For your discussion post this week, discuss the importance of ethics in organizations today. In addition, give us at least one specific example and explain how ethics can impact organizational effectiveness (positively or negatively). You example might come from personal experience, a news or journal article, or other source. Indicate where you obtained your information.
