Cell therapy is a controversial issue, although there is a need to identify the context within which this intervention is undertaken. A physician should be involved in providing a review on whether cell therapy is necessary based on the underlying complications. Every individual has a right to health. This should inform any decision that is undertaken.
Views on genetic enhancement and eugenics, both positive and negative

Maintaining a significant focus on the needs of others plays a vital role in creating an interactive environment where it is possible to make informed decisions. Respect for others and maintaining a high level of integrity are essential in my code of ethics.
Informed consent is an agreement to undertake a specific activity based on certain guidelines that have been developed. It is important to seek consent when carrying out a medical procedure because a patient has a right to consent or object based on the explanation of the procedure and how they are likely to be affected based on the decision they make. A patient has a right to refuse consent when they feel the procedure will compromise their health or beliefs.
View on paternalism
Paternalism is a decision undertaken that limits another individual liberty or autonomy. Healthcare providers have a right to provide accurate information to their patients and allow patients to decide for themselves when they are in the capacity to do so. However, paternalism might be necessary for a situation where the patient cannot consent, and a healthcare provider believes that paternalism will help improve patient health and wellbeing.
View on deception
Healthcare providers should always focus on providing honest responses to their patients regardless of how hard the information is for the patients to take. However, there is a need for healthcare workers to prepare patients for any eventuality so that there is no major negative influence on any medical information that is being shared.
View on confidentiality
Confidentiality is a major issue in healthcare. The protection of patient information is a vital aspect of healthcare and should be taken seriously by all healthcare providers. Sharing patient information is unethical as well as illegal.
View on solving a healthcare conflict
Healthcare conflict should be resolved positively without much drama considering the sensitive nature of the healthcare service industry. Any issue within healthcare should be addressed without compromising the quality and safety of patients. A negative perception of the ability to provide quality healthcare has created a different approach within which it is possible to help in maintaining a better platform for change and overall decision making in healthcare.
