Week 1: Introductions/Overview: An Ethical and Legal Framework - Discussion
This week's graded topics relate to the following Terminal Course Objectives (TCOs): A | Given a situation related to reproductive genetics, genetic research, or the human genome project, develop a set of legal and ethical guidelines, which can be applied to genetic issues for the conduct of medical practice and/or research. |
B | Given the contentious debate surrounding issues of procreation, develop an institutional policy, which can be applied to the range of treatment and research issues related to procreation. |

I am required to have CPR certification as a massage therapist. When I went through the training, I was under the impression that once you get certified, it is your duty to provide CPR if it is needed. I assume the nurses who worked at the facility were CPR certified. Yet there is a policy that bans them from giving CPR to the residents. I understand that there is a risk of liability when this happens, which could be deemed as an unintentional tort if someone is hurt from CPR. However, isn't a bigger issue if you are CPR certified and refuse to give CPR? Doesn't that open you up for negligence?
I'd like to know what others think...
