This course will provide participants with self awareness and reflective practice strategies in order to avoid some of the most common ethical violations. The concepts of competency, patient autonomy and integrity will provide the primary framework for analyzing what can go wrong and how to fix it!

Case scenarios/dilemmas will be presented through lecture and PPT. Discussion will be focus on exploration of the established ethical and legal standards to help identify correct attitudes and actions. The summary will include a review of the last 2 year’s trends of standards and ethics violations and resulting consequences and sanctions.
