In Syria, Doctors Risk Life and Juggle Ethics

In Syria, Doctors Risk Life and Juggle Ethics | MGT 307 | Scoop.it
As Syria moves toward destroying its chemical stockpile, some say the credit lies with doctors who risked their lives — and confronted questions of medical ethics — to expose the weapons’ use.
Brie Shipcott's insight:
1.Is the action illegal? Technically, doctors who give out medical information is illegal. But so is using chemical weapons on your country. 2.Does the action violate company or professional standards? Yes, like I said, doctors take a professional oath to keep patient doctor confidentiality. 3.Who is affected, and how, by the action?     - Are there any obligations? There is the obligation to the doctor himself, to keep his job. There is also the obligation to the people, and that means telling the US what is happening.      - What moral ideals are involved? There are many morals involved. The most important must be justice.      - What are the consequences? Whom will they affect? In what way? If the doctor didn't go to the US (although we kind of blew him off), many more people could be suffering right now. 4.Based on this analysis, is the action ethical? The doctor's choice to go to the US with this information was ethical.

Wal-Mart does employ a traditional bureaucratic management system within their management. The article displayed a lot of Taylorism influence.

Marin Family Rallies After Brothers Struck With Rare Brain Cancer - CBS San Francisco

Marin Family Rallies After Brothers Struck With Rare Brain Cancer - CBS San Francisco | MGT 307 | Scoop.it
There are more than 100 types of brain tumors. So when a North Bay family was told that both of their children had the exact same form of rare cancer it was both surprising and devastating.
Brie Shipcott's insight:

This story is about one of my neighbors/friends named Spencer from high school. When he was in his junior year, and I in my sophomore year, he was diagnosed with a massive brain tumor. The story is explained in the article.

 

I believe this relates to teamwork because of the remarkable amount of teamwork offered to raise money for this famiy's foundation, as well as the teamwork (support) given offered to help speancer (and his brother, diagnosed with the same tumor) through this struggle.
