2019 Student Ethics Essay

Topic: “Ethical Use of Social Media”

Foundational to professional and ethical conduct is the commitment to hold the welfare of clients paramount. The utilization of social media has become widespread and has changed the way individuals, businesses, and organizations communicate; however, inappropriate use of social media in the professions can lead to ethical violations. Adherence to professional obligations and standards is essential to eliminate the chance of an ethical violation related to misuse of social media and social networking.

In your essay, present an ethical dilemma or challenge that may be faced by a clinician or researcher related to the misuse of social media and its numerous platforms. Then, using ethics resources and the ASHA Code of Ethics (2016), identify one or more Principles and the corresponding Rule(s) that you believe have been violated, and provide a rationale for your choice(s). Finally, discuss what action(s) you would take to resolve this dilemma.

Essay Requirements

You and your essay must meet these requirements:

  • Essay Format
    • 1,200 words or less, excluding title and any references
    • Standard format including title, introduction, body, and summary/conclusion

    • Page numbers in footer, starting with first page
    • No footnotes, only end notes
