All too often, clinicians may mask a difficult patient care situation as an ethics consult with the expectation that the consultant will “fix” the problem. This presentation will review expectations and redefine the appropriate role of an ethics consultant. Through discussion of cases, chaplains will apply moral principles in their analysis of clinical and organizational scenarios they may experience in their ministry.
As a result of this workshop, participants will:
- Identify the four ethical principles as defined by Beauchamp and Childress that are often used in medical ethics.
- Articulate the five Catholic Social Teachings and the benefit/burden analysis as found in the Ethical and Religious Directives for Catholic Health Care Services.
- Apply these principles and Catholic moral teachings to clinical and organizational scenarios.
Educational Materials (recommended books, articles, or websites for participants to review prior to the workshop)
