Healthcare consumerism is a movement that advocates patients’ involvement in their own healthcare decisions. It is a movement from the ‘doctor says/patient does’ model to a ‘working partnership’ model; and for some, to a model of patient directed care.  Consumerism can present itself on a spectrum ranging from a patient requesting a specific test, to requests to deviate from standard of care, to requests to seek alternative forms of medicine.  These requests can bring forth a myriad of ethical issues. This talk will explore the ethical issues stemming from consumerism and provide practical strategies to manage such issues.

Objectives:

  • Identify ethical issues related to the rise of consumerism in healthcare.
  • Discuss practice issues related to the rise in consumerism in healthcare.
  • Discuss strategies for managing ethical issues arising from consumerism.
