About this item



Ethical dilemmas occur every day in the healthcare setting, whether you are involved or you see issues happening to others. As health professionals, we need to be aware of these situations, identify ways to prevent and/or deescalate these, and uphold the ethical principles that we serve.

What have you experienced? Racism? Breaches in information privacy? Transphobia? Lack of competency in a co-worker? Inappropriate work requests? Dangerous working environments?

This presentation discusses some of the leading ethical dilemmas facing our profession and the health care system. Learn how to the CSMLS Code of Ethics can help you when you experience your next issue. Why? Because you know dealing with an ethics issue at work is inevitable.
