Target Audience and Needs

Ethical dilemmas can arise in the day-to-day practice of physicians, nurses, social workers, advanced practice providers, and other allied health professionals.  The series aims to review classic and emerging issues in healthcare, focusing on developments in the field of clinical ethics, the practice of ethics consultation, and the role of ethics in shared clinical decision-making.  The series also aims to expand the knowledge of learners, foster the skills needed to resolve ethical dilemmas in clinical practice, and enhance the quality of patient care.

Educational Methods

Educational methods will include lectures.


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

  • Define the core ethical considerations relevant to clinical ethics.
  • Review common ethical conflicts that arise in the clinical setting and identify their potential causes.
  • Analyze ethical conflicts in the context of the core considerations of clinical ethics and recommend an ethically justifiable resolution.
  • Recognize when consultation with an ethicist may be of help in clinical decision-making.


Participants may be asked to complete a session evaluation.
