I'm finding myself stumped for a topic for this semester's research paper and I need help! Even though classes don't technically start until this Thursday, our semester is starting off with a BANG
and I want to get a jump on things before I get a chance to fall behind at all.
So, the paper. Here's the assignment description:
Identify a professional issue in which you identify a potential and significant conflict with your personal values and beliefs.
I'm stuck. I can't think of any professional issues that I foresee causing a conflict with my personal values or beliefs.
I know for this paper, I'm going to have to choose a stance even though it's not a true personal stance. Kind of like being assigned a topic and viewpoint for a debate.
So, can anyone think of or recommend topics or issues that have 2 (or more) clear sides and should have a fair amount of data, research, articles, etc. to use for research and citations?

End of life care--full code, agressive treatment in a pt with end stage disease (cancer, COPD, heart disease).
Advanced Directives say "no vent", decision maker overrules.
Old stand bys of assisting with abortions, circumcisions.
Oops, one more--read an article about genetic testing for breast cancer, MD cared for both mom and daughter--mom had (+) test, didn't plan on telling family, including daughter.
