What are your thoughts??Ones worldview is the foundation that provides guidance for moral dilemmas. A worldview enlightens one’s ethical theory and in turn defines principles. The definition of the principles is then applied to a specific ethical dilemma (Hoehner, 2020). Individual situations require specifying, weighing, and balancing how each principle is applied. How different people would apply the principles is founded in their worldview and a Christian worldview would help apply a framework to define and specify each principle. There is not a ranking order to these principles, each holds important aspects to implementing ethical healthcare but at times they can conflict causing ethical dilemmas. This is when specifying their application to the situation considers the individual situation. One principle may take precedence over another, but it does not negate the other principle.12/05/20207nursing
