Healthcare Ethics Journal
Edge and Groves (p.172) note that few voices in America calling for a right to health care also call Americans to a lifestyle that promotes health and lowers health care costs for both the individual and the nation. Ironically, health care professionals have a reputation for neglecting their own personal health as noted by the rates of obesity, heavy use of snack foods and unhealthy fast foods, lack of physical exercise and sleep. etc. Answer the following questions: o What personal health practices have I incorporated for promoting health and lowered stress levels? o How and when do I intend to address those areas where my lifestyle is in conflict with my long term health. o What ethical principles, moral obligations, and professional commitments beyond pure self-interest are motivating my efforts to maintain my personal health?
