Health Care Ethics means being true to the patient i.e. providing care and treatment that deliver medical benefits, reflect what's important to the patient's well-being, and respect what the patient wants. Ethics give us a framework to help work through those uncertainties and develop a plan of action that is focused on the patient's well-being and wishes, and is respectful of the concerns of the patient's family and the patient's professional caregivers.
Peer review refers to the work done during the screening of submitted manuscripts and funding applications. This process encourages authors to meet the accepted standards of their discipline and reduces the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views. Publications that have not undergone peer review are likely to be regarded with suspicion by academic scholars and professionals.
