Abstract and Keywords

This chapter presents the results of the 2011 Psychiatric Times ethics survey of psychiatrists. The nearly seven hundred participants responded to questions exploring opinions on general questions regarding ethical dilemmas and short scenarios on topics in the domains of end-of-life, professional boundaries, conflict of interest and public health. Qualitative and descriptive analysis of the data reveals three broad areas of ethical conflicts in current psychiatric practice: rise of technology, competing agendas, and the ascendency of medication management.

Keywords: survey, empirical ethics, ethical dilemma, professional boundaries, end-of-life, moral distress
