Best Answer

Beneficene is an action that is done for the benefit of others. Whether one helps prevent harm or removes harm, ideally it is the protection of the rights of others and patients. Nonmaleficence is simple the act to do no harm. One must determine if the benefts outweigh the burden. There really is no specific difference as if these were opposite definitions. You must learn to use both together to perform optimum decisions
