Addressing Ethical Issues in Clinical Practice: A Case Study Approach - Higher Thought Institute
Session Description

There are several core values that serve as the underpinnings of ethical clinical practice.  These include: service, social justice, dignity of individuals, the importance of human relationships, integrity and clinical competence.  Having a code of ethics helps to guide our work and to define our own limits and boundaries.  An ethical code also helps to protect the individuals we serve, the organizations where we work and our own professional liability.

Most seasoned clinicians can identify a number of different ethical dilemmas they have faced in their clinical practice.  This workshop will present a seven-step decision-making model for managing ethical dilemmas that emerge in clinical practice.  Workshop participants will have the opportunity to apply the seven-step model to a number of different clinical case studies presented.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe core values of ethical clinical practice.
  • Define the purpose and benefits of adhering to a professional code of ethical conduct.
  • Apply an ethical decision-making model to specific clinical cases.
