Keynote Address: Ethics in EMS – Who Cares?
French, Erica L. (2007) Keynote Address: Ethics in EMS – Who Cares? In Australian College of Ambulance Professionals – Asia Pacific International Conference: Out of Hospital Care – Challenge Your Boundaries, 26-29 September, Gold Coast, Australia.
Interest in business and managerial ethics has increased in recent years. Determining the rules and principles that define appropriate conduct in organisations is complicated and evaluating ethical decision-making problematical. Three fundamental principles of ethics are explored and their influences investigated in the context of emergency medical services. Responses of Queensland Ambulance Professionals to a mail survey examining their views concerning ethical conflicts and practises within their work environments are reported. Besides identifying the sources and types of conflicts they experience, respondents were asked how ethical standards have changed over the past 10 years as well as the factors influencing these changes.
