“Kantian Ethics can help us determine what we must not do; but how are we to decide what we should do.” (p16) There are strong views to why some individuals agree and disagree on Dr. Brody dilemma, and personally I believe its how you as a individual view the situation along with your beliefs. In todays world doctors are placed everyday situations to where they are forced to make the right ethical decision possible for the patient.

In the essay, The Devil’s Bait by Leslie Jamison, Jamison emphasizes her paper about Morgellons Disease. Throughout her essay, Jamison introduces the urgency of the disease by going to a location that is known to have many people asking the doctors to believe them. The reason Morgellons Disease is an urgent topic that must be discussed is because many people feel like their voices are not being heard and ignored. Many have a disease whom they see as needing emergency treatment, however they are being told it is their brain playing tricks on them. The rhetor is compelled to speak about this issue for it gives those whom she interviewed a sense of voice and a call out to doctors to be more understanding of their patients.

Healthcare staff and physicians must plan and strategies their approaches to communicating the clinical knowledge that they have to their patients and the patient’s family members who have limited or no clinical knowledge in order to turn the barriers into assets (Burns, Bradley, & Weiner, 2011). To do this, healthcare staff and physicians must attempt to view the particular situation from the perspective of the stakeholder’s.

After watching the film, I noticed that there were a lot of significant moral issues, which correlates with the nursing profession. One of it is the proper way of upholding patient 's rights when it comes to medical research. As a nursing major, I am aware that it is one of my ethical responsibilities to ensure that utmost care and treatment are provided to my patient 's advocate which means that we should stand and do something when we see malpractice being done to our patients.
