Week 8 Case Analysis (MKT6250 Healthcare Marketing)
- Due Friday by 11:59pm
Read the attached case, the textbook chapters, and watch the videos to be able to analyze the case.
The issue presented in this case is a serious and difficult issue from a religious, moral and health care perspective. There are significant wait times for organs in several important areas to maintain bodily functions for people in the U.S. In addition to the established procedures that have been used to harvest organs, sadly there has been a black market that has also occurred for organ harvesting. Within the medical profession some have questioned whether individuals should be paid to donate and whether this might, with appropriate regulations, lead to greater pools for donated organs and the reduction of wait times in needed areas. The challenge then is to determine some of the ethical perspectives around this issue.
Discuss both the pros and cons of “pay-for-parts”.
