Ethical Issues in Healthcare Seminar is organized by Ausmed Education Pty Ltd and will be held from Mar 28 - 29, 2019 at Lakes Resort Hotel, Adelaide, South Australia, Australia. The target audience for this medical event is Nurses. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 11.00 CPD Hours. Overview: As health professionals, every day and in every situation, we try and make the right decisions. We strive to and even pride ourselves on behaving in the right way. Most of us would argue that we intrinsically act in an ethical as well as professional manner. But, although intuition is involved, it is not sufficient. Ethical behavior and ethical decision-making is a process. It incorporates values, opinions, perceptions, and personalities. Importantly, frameworks can assist us. This seminar will facilitate reflective practice by using relatable examples to explain what supports ethical behavior and decision-making, including: • What does unethical decision-making look like? • How would you know if you or a colleague behaved in an unethical manner? • Is it ethical to be friends with patients through social media? • Futile treatment, euthanasia, and other ethical challenges • What to do when your value system is compromised Need for Program: Nurses, midwives, and other health professionals are at the forefront of providing health care. All of us that work in healthcare will be confronted by a wide range of ethical issues during the course of our day-to-day work. There is a need to make rapid decisions, yet this can be complicated by high workloads, complex systems, and human factors. There are few opportunities to professionally engage and discuss the ethical issues that arise in health care. Learning more about ethics can ensure that health professionals can confidently manage difficult situations, make clearer decisions, and improve patient outcomes. Purpose of Program: By using realistic, everyday case studies, nurses, midwives, and other health professionals will gain practical knowledge on how to develop their ethical decision-making and problem-solving skills, and, in so doing, improve patient and family outcomes. Learning Outcomes: • Give benefit to patients in your care from you have both an understanding of what is ethical care and how to practice in an ethical manner • Respond with greater confidence to common clinical situations that may require a decision to be made based on an ethical framework or dilemma • Empower patients and families in your care by your ability to advocate for them and to enable them to comfortably discuss challenging ethical situations and concerns with you • “Unpack” common workplace clinical scenarios, enabling you to more clearly approach and resolve these issues, and more effectively support your colleagues in challenging situations
