When Death The Unspoken Speaks: Bioethical Issues and End-of-Life Decisions
About This NYSED Social Work Board Approved Workshop (4-CEUs)
NYSED Social Work Board Approved Certificate will be awarded upon completing both sessions. Bioethical Issues and End-of-Life Decisions explores two different approaches to medical ethics—one based on the application of ethical principles to individual cases, the other based on case-by-case analysis. Practitioners will consider how we can use medical ethics in the formulation of health policy. Moreover, attention will be given to the following: the role of social workers as mediators when there is a difference of opinion between doctor and patient; and ways to support and facilitate patient self-determination.
