Gillon Example One
Here's the original from Gillon, (1995):
Among the more important are the following prima facie duties: to give
the patient at least what he or she considers to be adequate information,
and often more if the doctor knows that more information will probably
be appreciated and relevant to good decision making; not to lie to or
otherwise deceive the patient (unless he or she deliberately chooses
such deception); and to allow the patient to have at least strategic
control over which course of action to pursue - that is, the doctor
may advise, but the patient is then given the opportunity to decide
whether to accept that advice. (Gillon, 1995, p. 165).
And here's the first example:
Gillon, (1995, p.165) states that the doctor should not deceive the patient,
except when that is the patient's own choice. Otherwise, adequate and
accurate information should be given. In my placement, I worked with
two patients who had the same illness, but who asked for very different
amounts of information. One wished to be told as much as possible; the
other did not want to be told anything, and said so. I co-operated with
the patients' different wishes. The underlying principle is that the
patient should be the judge of what is the proper amount of information,
not the doctor or nurse.
Is it plagiarism?
No, it isn't. It has a reference, an accurate paraphrase of the part
of the Gillon being used, and a relevant example from practice. This student
also draws a general principle which is relevant to the printed source
and to their own practice. Example 1 is part of a good essay.
