What is Medical Ethics Training?

Healthcare professionals are required to make difficult decisions every day as part of their jobs. For each situation that arises, they must strike a balance between:

  • providing effective care;
  • doing what is best for a particular patient and for society in general; and
  • allowing a patient to have a voice in treatment options.

To help guide them when making difficult decisions, healthcare professionals rely on a set of principles known as medical ethics. Medical ethics provides information about the standards of acceptable behavior that serve as the foundation for medical care.

Does your organization have a medical ethics compliance program? Healthcare facilities and medical research organizations should put in place a medical ethics compliance program to ensure that their staff and the organization as a whole are adhering to the industry standard norms of medical ethics principles. These training and compliance programs help ensure that workers are informed about the medical ethics delimmas they will face daily and how to address them properly.

Adhering to industry accepted medical ethical standards and guidelines will result in successful patient interaction, improved outcomes, proper legal compliance, minimized financial losses, and reduction of any potential disputes or litigation.

MedicalEthicsTraining.com offers training and certification on medical ethics for an individual or an organization. A wide range of medical ethics topics are discussed in this training such as patient confidentiality, informed consent, surrogate decision making, disclosing medical errors, medical research, beginning and end-of-life issues, etc. Case studies are also provided to apply principles learned to real world situations.
