Professional ethics is a cornerstone of any clinical practice. With the movement toward greater integration of multidisciplinary care provision in medical setting, the sheer nature and complexities of different disciplines cooperatively provided care can lead to more ethical dilemmas and challenges. As a result, a more nuanced team-based appreciation of ethical principles and practices is warranted.
