Q.2. Discuss how power can influence decision making in healthcare
It turns out that powerful individuals do think differently. New research according to Newell and Shanks (2014) shows that individuals in positions of high power and those who are in low power make different decisions when handling the same scenario. According to study conducted by Ferrell and Fraedrich (2015), people in high power uses deontological pattern, also known as rule-based method to make decisions. In this regard, these individuals may rush to make verdicts without consulting key stakeholders or following proper channels. On the hand, people in low power increase reliance on outcome-based method also known as consequentialist. According to Ferrell and Fraedrich (2015), power makes people to stick to the rule irrespective of the outcome of their decision; however, powerless are inclined to make several exceptions depending on the decision that will yield a positive outcome.
