The previous courses in this ethics programme have considered general strategies to identify, reflect, discuss, resolve and evaluate ethical issues with reference to our personal and professional codes of practice. In this last course we delve deeper into specific areas of practice and certain prominent considerations for all areas of practice. The course explores private practice and palliative care, culturally competency and professional relationships, telemedicine and sports medicine.  You will be able to apply the things learned on this course into any part of your professional life.


The aim of this course is to expand on your experiences of ethical issues in various professional practice settings and give you the confidence to resolve these dilemmas in all aspects of your practice.
