Ethical Considerations of Self-Determination in Medical Settings

Medical settings present service providers with diverse patient situations and circumstances which sometimes involve ethical dilemmas. Understanding the role of ethics, law, policy, and personal values is essential to making sound ethical decisions that involve patients. Physicians, nurses, social workers, and other healthcare providers benefit from discussion around ethics and self-determination.

Learners will gain an overview of key social work ethical principles and frameworks. Specific ethical dilemmas in medical settings will be introduced for learners to critically analyze through case studies, including decisional capacity, competence, cultural factors, and autonomy. Participants will be encouraged to use critical thinking skills, ethical principles, and ethical decision-making models to arrive at best practice decisions regarding medical self-determination cases. Grand case studies will be presented for learners to address and respond to by participating in discussion and reflection.

In support of improving patient care, this activity has been planned and implemented by Amedco LLC and CE You! Amedco LLC is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.
