Through ethical reasoning we develop a deeper understanding of ethics and our values in relation to our changing practices, in turn reducing burn-out through insight. Learning more about ethics can help us to improve our practice by understanding how to identify, define, and negotiate ethical issues.

Course Description

This one day dynamic, interactive, case-based course will address the common, ethics-based concerns of the health practitioner. It is designed to take ethics out of the realm of theory, giving you the tools and strategies necessary to apply ethics to the decision-making process (and be comfortable with those decisions) when situations arise where health ethics are an issue.

Target Audience

This one-day course is appropriate for any health practitioner who is involved in direct and/or indirect patient care. It is especially appropriate for those practitioners where ethics must be considered in any resolution to a patient situation involving health care.
