Consequentialism Looks at the consequences of the act: good acts are ones that produce good consequences, bad acts are ones that produce bad consequences

Two principles of consequentialism Nonmalifence and benefice
Define nonmalificence Actions are wrong insofar as they produce bad outcomes
Define benefice Actions are right insofar as they produce benefits
Classic Utilitarianism Form of consequentialism that determines which acts are right by figuring the net good of consequences minus bad consequences for each person affected and then addition to find the total net good. (indifferent to who obtains the benefits and harms)
Hippocratic Ethics Focuses on individual patient and sometimes gives special weight to avoiding harms
6 ethical principles (duties) that make up deontological ethics Justice, Veracity, Fidelity, Autonomy, Avoidance of Killing, Beneficence
Justice Upholding moral and legal principles with integrity-unequal distribution of goods is wrong.
Autonomy persons and their beliefs be respected even if doing so will not produce the most good
Veracity Always telling the truth (telling a lie is wrong in itself)
Fidelity Keeping promises and commitments
Beneficence Pharmacist should act so as to benefit the patient
Rules-Situation Debate Conflict between those who believe the rules themselves should be defining factor and those who consider the situation itself to be the most critical determination of moral rightness
Rigorists (Deontologist) Rules should never be violated. (immobilized when 2 rules conflict)
"Rules-of-Practice" Rules should just be applied rather than each case be evaluated from scratch. Open to exceptions to the rules.
Situationalist Consider every situation unique but willing to be guided by moral rules
Antinomians "Against rules" - immobilized when they treat a situation so brand new that no moral help gained from past experiences
