Hospital of Lithuanian University of Health Sciences
Medical ethics is an important topic for all healthcare professionals. It is a difficult subject to teach students in healthcare. Incorporating ethical issues to guide decision making poses a challenge when there are conflicts between ethical principles.
Unlike clinical practice, the goals of integrating medical ethics into the medical and nursing students curriculum are to provide a useful framework for understanding and analyzing ethical conflicts, which will inspire students to make thoughtful ethical clinical decisions, rather than providing precise strategies and exact answers for management of specific situations. Educators may struggle to design effective and meaningful educational experiences that can not only develop an understanding of ethical principles, but also demonstrate application of these principles.
Participants will learn (1) how to distinguish the medical problem from ethics problem; (2) will have opportunity to make an ethical decision;(3) discuss the possibilities of patient choices and wishes implementation in the real life.
Interactive seminar with time for practical exercises.
Who should attend?
All who is involved in undergraduate and postgraduate health professionals’ education, health care workers, clinical managers, and hospital administration.
