  • You Decide Due Dec 8 by 11:59pm Points 75 Submitting a file upload Required Resources Read/review the following resources for this activity:  Textbook: Chapter 8; review previous chapters Lesson Link (file): Memo TemplatePreview the document You Decide (See page in Week 6) Minimum of 2 scholarly sources Instructions This assignment presents a difficult and painful medical dilemma, with you in an imagined professional role. Go through the You Decide scenario and make the decision it calls for. Then, compose an official memorandum that will be kept for the record and could potentially be read not only by your Peer Review Committee but also by those involved in charitable fundraising, which supports hospital development, as well as by others with financial interests in the decision.  In the memo (use the Memo Template), explain your decision and your reasoning for it. Include the following:  Who benefits from what you decided? Explain why. Who gets denied a needed benefit? Explain why. You will see notice that there is time pressure in the simulated situation, so remember that you would not have the luxury to dawdle in the decision-making process, and as the decision maker, you would not have the luxury of consulting a broad spectrum of advisors. It falls on you to decide!  Include in the memo the utilitarian ethical philosophy of John Stuart Mill (from the lesson last week) and one other ethical philosopher of your choosing that we have studied to date. Use both of those philosophies to bolster your decision.  Writing Requirements (APA format)  Length: 2-3 pages (not including title page or references page) 1-inch margins Double spaced 12-point Times New Roman font Title page References page (minimum of 2 scholarly sources) Grading This activity will be graded based on Ethical Analysis Grading Rubric.  Weekly Objectives (WO) WO5.1  Due Date: By 11:59 p.m. MT on Sunday  Rubric Ethical Analysis Grading Rubric - 75 pts (2) Ethical Analysis Grading Rubric - 75 pts (2) Criteria Ratings Pts This criterion is linked to a Learning OutcomeLength 5.0 pts Outstanding Meets length requirement 0.0 pts No Effort 5.0 pts This criterion is linked to a Learning OutcomeContent 10.0 pts Outstanding Addresses all aspects of the assignment. 8.5 pts Above Average Addresses most aspects of the assignment. 7.5 pts Average Addresses some aspects of the assignment. 6.0 pts Below Average Addresses few aspects of the assignment. 0.0 pts No Effort 10.0 pts This criterion is linked to a Learning OutcomeAnalysis 20.0 pts Outstanding Throughout the whole work, the writing shows depth of critical thought;

  • Hospital Memorandum on Heart Transplant  To: From: Date: Subject: Content:

  • Scenario Ok, Lead Surgeon, it is time to do what you do best! There is a lot at stake. The decision must be made almost immediately. Like all actions, you will need to write your decision into medical documentation before you begin. Yes, that means YOU! In the limited time before you would begin surgery, you need to consider the cases; the technical issues involved also, and write a Memorandum for the Record to document what decision you made and what considerations you included in your process. This will be on the record, so it needs to be thorough in case it needs to justify your actions at a later date.
  • Role You are the Lead Surgeon in a major hospital, and by virtue of your seniority you are also the key decision maker for transplant cases. Right now you have three people who are waiting and hoping for a suitable heart to become available. Your cell phone rings suddenly, and you are notified that a heart has become available-meaning that you need to make a quick yet sound decision about which patient will receive the heart and then schedule surgery for today.

  • Deliverable Your assignment is to make the decision using utilitarian ethics--as this week's classwork and discussions have brought you that skill--and then to write it up in the form of a Memorandum for the hospital records. Remember that this record could be reviewed by the Peer Review Committee or the Hospital Trustees at a later date. This is Utilitarian Week in our course. Employ what you have learned from J. S. Mill and Utilitarianism this week AND one other of our course's ethicists (of your choice) from earlier weeks. The Memorandum should be at least two double-spaced pages with a maximum of three pages, in memorandum form, ready to become an official item of record.
