Target Audience and Needs

Staff physicians and other allied health professionals at the Baylor St. Luke's Medical Center need to be regularly updated on the guidelines and challenges related to ethics consultation, clinical ethics practice, and the role of ethics in shared clinical decision-making.  The series aims to increase knowledge of the learners in these topic areas, and to provide the skills and tools for their implementation in clinical practice in order to enhance the quality of patient care.

Educational Methods

Educational methods will include lectures and panel discussion.


At the conclusion of the sessions, the participants should be able to:

  • Identify the core principles of clinical ethics—autonomy, beneficence, non-maleficence, and justice.
  • Integrate the core principles of clinical ethics into a deliberate analysis of clinical issues.
  • Identify the potential causes of ethical conflicts in the clinical setting.
  • Discuss shared decision-making in informed consent, and recognize when an Ethics consultation may be of help in clinical decision-making.


Participants may be asked to complete a session evaluation.
