Because health care institutions are increasingly reliant on philanthropic fundraising from grateful patients, it is essential to understand public and patient perspectives about the ethical considerations in this context, including privacy and confidentiality, patient vulnerability, and physicians' conflicts of obligations.  The research team will conduct a survey to illuminate where current practices may diverge from public expectations, to focus deliberation on where policy changes may be needed.
