These are often driven by communal or societal norms (such as cultural influences, the social context of our lives, family, religion, etc.). Ethical Code – the standards of right/wrong or good/bad that assist with the assessment of what is good/bad (right/wrong) in certain communities or social settings (such as in a professional context). Ethical Dilemma (aka moral dilemma) – A conflict in decision-making as a result of conflicting moral and ethical values. In the context of the assessment, this is where there is a conflict between personal moral values (suggesting one pathway) and the standards of behaviour/outcome set by the professional Ethical code (or code of conduct).
