Paper describing a current biomedical ethical policy ( institutional, organizational, or national) in the United States: The student will analyze and critique the policy and offer suggestions for improvement. The theoretical support for this paper will be.
You are asked to describe one aspect of an institutional or public policy. You should identify the agents involved and their interests, critique the policy ( using a theoretical perspective) and offer changes to improve the policy. This paper is too short to critique the entire policy. pick one sentence to critique. Be specific and critique only one idea or one sentence in the policy. Please note: I will be carefully evaluating the defense of the position that you do not support as a solution. So it is important to give a comprehensive theoretical analysis for the action you do not propose as a solution. I will want to see a defense of the current policy as written as well as a defense of the proposed changes to the policy. Each ethical theory has its strengths and weaknesses. Many theories are immature or incomplete. But they are the best we have at the present. So in your papers, you are not expected to make the theory better. But you are expected to use it accurately- even if it does not explain or ‘solve’ the dilemma as well as you would like. You are not graded on how well the theory ‘fits’ the policy. It may support one side of the issue much better than the other side. You are being graded on how well you apply the theory( with its strengths and weaknesses) to the policy. Most students find that principles theory by Beauchamp and Childress is good to find that the Utilitarian Theory works well for the policy paper analysis.
Outline for the paper:
1- Abstract: ( see the discussion of abstracts in the APA manual)
2- Description of policy
3- Identification of agents and their interests
4- Theoretical analysis of policy
5- Short description of the theory to be used
6- Statement and analysis of position the theory does not support well
7- Use the same theoretical framework
8- Statement and analysis of position the theory does support
9- Use the same theoretical framework
10 ( You may find two different solutions that can be supported by your theory)
11- ( You may also find that the theory you have chosen only supports one solution well. If this is the case, state that and then say which other theory would support the position you hold to be the correct solution to the policy analysis
12- Summary and conclusion
