The basics of biomedical ethics haven’t changed. The ethical principles, theories, and values that have guided our decision-making are the same, but the scenarios requiring ethical consideration have evolved.
Many of the ethical dilemmas healthcare professionals face today were non-existent a few decades ago. Social media has placed ethical concerns on the medical community. The pandemic called into discussion multiple ethical dilemmas. An old ethical problem, dual relationships, is being reviewed due to societal changes. As society ages, dementia is becoming more common, and ethics in the context of that diagnosis cause the need for a review of the basic principles of beneficence and non-maleficence.
In this course, we will discuss both the foundational ethical principles and their application in situations more common in today’s modern society. Included in the course are the codes of conduct for CCM, CRC, CDMS, RN, and NAADAC and how they apply in their relationship to these old and new ethical challenges.
