In this assignment, you will analyze the concept of diversity, autonomy, and bioethics.
There exists a crossroads between diversity, autonomy, and bioethics, which must be identified and respected. The enigma of patient-centered care exercising patient autonomy with an overlay of cultural diversity and bioethics is highly complex. The right choice rests within the patient, and the health professional must provide the necessary information to allow the patient to make the best suitable choice based on his or her personal values.
This assignment will require you to read the articles listed below and prepare a three- to five-page response highlighting the challenges of diversity, autonomy, and bioethics for the healthcare professional and a best practice approach to how healthcare delivery can best accommodate the diverse population of the United States.
