Healthcare is full of gray areas, high stakes situations, and tensions between personal and professional values. This course explores the moral nature of the healthcare professions and common values-based conflicts in clinical practice. By examining real, everyday cases and current issues in healthcare, and developing habits of reflective practice, learners will have the opportunity to recognize and respond to moral uncertainties that arise in the interprofessional clinical environment. The course presents practical knowledge and skills needed for ethics deliberation and decision making.
