ABSTRACT
The article presents a discussion related to ethical behavior. "Ethics" is a bit like "beauty" defined by the individual. What might be clearly unethical in one's opinion would be dismissed by others as normal business practice. Conflicts of interest are everywhere and cannot be completely avoided. Disclosure is the crucial antidote. These behaviors are often not black or white. The problem is what to do about the shades of gray. One needs to develop model rules of ethical behavior in health care and the business of health care as did the legal community with the model disciplinary rules.
