Ethical Issues in Orthopaedic Surgery (1998)
American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons
This program was originally developed to help train orthopaedic residents. Ten clinical cases are presented to stimulate discussion. The associated discussion guide provides questions and answers focusing on the ethical issues raised by each case. Some cases permit several possible resolutions. The discussion guide cites resources for additional reading for each case and founds the ethical stance taken in the ethics codes of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS). Ethical concerns include: gifts from industry, informed consent, confidentiality, DNR orders and surgery, abuse of power, and physician impairment. Topics covered in the video were selected by the ethics committee of AAOS. The video was funded by the AAOS, the Academic Orthopaedic Society, and the American Orthopaedic Association. The video accompanies an article reporting unethical research behavior from Evaluation Review 1999 October; 23(5): 553-570. This summary is a modification of that posted by the AAOS on their Orthopaedic Resource Catalog site at http://www4.aaos.org/product/cd_item.cfm?code=02705.
