General practice ethics: issues in family relationships
This is the third in a six-part series on general practice ethics. Cases from practice are used to trigger reflection on common ethical issues where the best course of action may not immediately be apparent. The case presented in this article is an illustrative compilation and is not based on specific individuals. In the first article, the authors provided a suggested framework for considering the ethical issues to assist practi-tioners in reaching an ethically justifiable decision.
