what are the ethical responsibilities of physicians in opioid crisis

  • Describe the issue you have chosen to write about.
    • Who? What? When? Where? Why?
  • Then write about three possible ethical responses to the issue; each response should get an entire paragraph, so this part of your paper should be three paragraphs long. What are some questions, concerns, problems, challenges, etc. you see in your chosen issue?
    • These do not have to be responses that YOU personally agree with; rather, these are three possible responses that anyone could have (you will have a chance to give your own opinion later in the paper).
    • Please refer to a specific theory we have learned about in class in at least one of your three responses.
  • What do you personally consider to be the most ethical response? Why? This should take up another paragraph.
    • This is your chance to share your own opinion about this issue! You can agree with one of the possible responses you presented earlier, or you can write about a totally new reaction here.
    • Be sure to write about not only what you think but also why you believe what you do. The more detail, the better!
  • Don’t forget to write a conclusion!

Structure: The structure of your paper should follow this pattern:

  • Paragraph 1 ~ Introduction: describe the issue you have selected
  • Paragraph 2 ~ Possible ethical response #1
  • Paragraph 3 ~ Possible ethical response #2
  • Paragraph 4 ~ Possible ethical response #3
  • Paragraph 5 ~ Your own personal ethical response
  • Paragraph 6 ~ Conclusion: final thoughts about the issue

Length: Your paper should end up being between 3 and 5 pages.
