 Workshop Description:

There are several core values that serve as the underpinnings of ethical clinical practice, including service, social justice, the dignity of individuals, the importance of human relationships, integrity, and clinical competence.  Having a code of ethics helps to guide our work, to define our own limits and boundaries, and 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 ethical dilemmas that emerge in clinical practice.  Participants will then practice applying the seven-step model to a number of different clinical case studies presented.

 

Learning Objectives:

After attending this intermediate-level workshop, participants will be able to:

(1) Describe core values of ethical clinical practice.

(2) Describe the purpose and benefits of adhering to a professional code of ethical conduct.

(3) Apply an ethical decision-making model to specific clinical cases.
