Ethics A (Ethics in Clinical Care) LIMITED
Limited Capacity seats available

An ethical audit enables health and human services as well as professionals in the field to assure that their clinical practices and the practices of the organization within which they are employed meet certain minimum standards of care.  Whether examining this from the perspective of the Hippocratic Oath or the performance improvement mantra of “do the right thing and do the right thing well” the clinician, direct care worker, manager and/or administrator must wrestle with solving principled and moral dilemmas on a daily basis.

This workshop will address from an individual and organizational view the principles of ethics and negligence, will discuss concepts related to the duty of care owed, and provide a framework from which participants can conduct an ethical audit from a risk management perspective.
