The Problem of Dual Loyalty - Through African Eyes Kyle Wilson, with an introduction by Graham Howarth
All health professionals, no matter what their background, will experience problems of dual loyalty. As long as relationships between the health professional and other parties, other than the patient, exist, there will be potential for problems of dual loyalty. Our challenge as health professionals is to place our patients first and negotiate the many ethical challenges this duty presents. How can we negotiate these challenges on the African continent?
