Utilizing the ethics of project management in the healthcare field

Ethical codes are a hallmark of mature professions and organizations. This article compares PMI's ethical code to the organizational ethical code used at Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota (CHCM) and the professional ethical codes used by physicians and registered nurses. In doing so, it identifies a definition of ethics and describes the early history of ethics scholarship. It then lists sections from PMI's Member Code of Ethics and explains the relationship of these precepts to the ethical codes used to define the performance of members of CHCM, the American Medical Association, and American Nurses Association (ANA). In examining these relationships, it discusses the similarities between managing projects and operating hospitals and administering patient care.
