Bioethics Practicum:

Students will critically assess common and complex ethical issues in health care practice (e.g., advance directives, caring for patients with uncertain capacity, children’s healthcare, consent, ethical decision-making about potentially life-sustaining interventions, medical assistance in dying) and frameworks for managing ethical issues in healthcare organizations, including tools for ethical assessment and problem-solving and strategies for ethics case consultation. The goal of the course is to help students to integrate theoretical knowledge/concepts acquired in assigned readings and previous theory courses with the daily realities of healthcare practice. Assignments will emphasize students’ communication of ethical analyses to healthcare audiences.
