Ethical Issues in Orthopaedic Surgery: Discussion Guide to the Video Cases (2003)
American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons
The ten cases, on topics selected by the Ethics Committee of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, and the discussion guide were designed for use in an ethics course for orthopaedic surgeon residents or for self-study for practicing orthopaedic surgons. Presented on DVD, the cases and discussion guide cover: gifts from industry; the impaired physician; informed consent and research; practicing under the pressures of managed care; maintaining confidentiality; end-of-life decisions, DNR orders and surgery; advertising; medical decision-making and cross-cultural issues; power abuse; and performing newly learned procedures. The discussion guide identifies the teaching objectives, offers questions to stimulate discussion with answers provided, suggests role-playing practicum topics, and provides references for each topic. Links are made between the ethical position presented and the codes of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. The guide was written by Neil S. Wenger, MD, MPH and Jay R. Lieberman, MD in the Departments of Medicine and Orthopaedic Surgery at the David Geffen School of Medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles. The education program was developed by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, the American Orthopaedic Association, and the Academic Orthopaedic Society. The guide is marked first edition, copyright 2003. (A publication with the same title was released in 1998 by AAOS in VHS format; the 2003 "first edition" is a full-revision of the earlier work.)
