Read an excerpt from the 2020 winner, Jade Duncan.

As a clinician and clinical leader, my decision making is driven by ethical considerations, health outcomes and evidence-based resources. I recall a time when I was a young dentist, maybe 10 years ago where I was faced with a dilemma that called for reason and wisdom to be applied. I had a very untoward interaction with a patient who was extremely belligerent and insisted that I perform a particular treatment on him that I knew was below the standard of care for his clinical situation. 

The clinic manager at that time insisted that we appease the patient, so that we can maintain a good patient satisfaction score and to deescalate the situation. I, however, disagreed with the manager’s decision. I stood my ground and explained to the manager that based on my code of ethics, I cannot perform a treatment that can knowingly harm the patient, and that there was a limited prognosis of it being successful.
