Module 5 Discussion Board

NOTE: The purpose of this discussion board is to investigate and better understand clinical or health issues related to Bio169. 

While your personal, cultural or religious beliefs may play a role in which side of the argument you pick, please remember that in this EDUCATIONAL SETTING we will:

1) Avoid judgmental opinions/ comments

2) Stick to scientific facts backed by cited research 

and of course 

3) Always just be plain “ole” nice! J

If you’d really like to challenge yourself, choose a side that is opposite to your initial beliefs. 

Part 1: Initial Post (80 points)

Imagine that you are an emergency room doctor. One evening, a patient comes in who has attempted suicide. You learn that this patient is terminally ill and has do-not-resuscitate (DNR) orders. As you begin to treat the patient, they stop breathing. You must choose one of the following: 1) try to resuscitate the patient or 2) abide the patient’s DNR order. Before choosing your answer, research both options from a doctor’s perspective – there is a reason why this is considered an ethical issue. In your post, include the following:

· Explain what terminally ill means and give an example of a terminal illness (don’t just state the illness – be sure to explain what it is and how the body is affected).

· Explain the ethical dilemma that this scenario presents.

· State your decision. Include at least 3 reasons as to why you chose this. 

· You must include at least 3 reputable scientific sources. Reputable sources= peer reviewed scientific journal articles, accredited websites, or books. Google, Wikipedia, etc. are not acceptable sources. Remember that you can use FTCC’s library website (opens in new window) to facilitate your search. Be sure to include in-text citations and properly cite the sources (MLA or APA format) at the end of your initial post.

Part 2: Responses (20 points) 

You will respond to two classmate’s discussion submissions. 

· Each comment must be 150-200 words

· One response should be to someone who made the same decision as you and the other response should be to someone who made the opposite decision. You are not fighting or arguing with your peers.

· Evaluate their argument. (Is there research that you can offer to refute or support their side? Does their argument pose other questions or have areas that have been left unaddressed?)

· Offer questions or responses to what is said (“Good Job”, or “I agree, good job” are NOT allowed as your response!!) 

· Your response should also add to the body of knowledge in the class just as your initial post should have.
