Ethical issues in intervention outcomes.


This article discusses selected ethical issues involved with the outcomes of interventions. An intervention is a process of intrusion into value systems based on a relationship of mutual trust and shared expectations between the intervener and the participant. Too often, interveners focus on the outcome without considering the mediating variables that can influence the outcome; therefore, intervention outcomes may fail or be short-lived. Many ethical issues with respect to how interventions are designed and implemented can affect their success or failure.
