AbstractThis paper offers a general approach to codes of professional ethics through careful study of a particular problem of conflict of interest a clinical engineer might face on the job. How might a code of ethics help to resolve such a problem? How can a code be written to make it likely that it will be helpful? What other institutions should be in place to assure it will be helpful? Why should codes of ethics be more than mere statements of aspiration or common sense?
