Ethical Responsibilities to Colleagues and Implications for Client and Patient Well-Being
Most often in ethics workshops, we focus on ethical obligations to clients. There are other aspects of our ethical obligations as members of service professions. These broader obligations include ethical responsibilities to colleagues.
Sister Mary Louise Wessell, CSJ, MN, PhD, will explore these responsibilities as expressed in various codes of ethics. Using a systematic method of case analysis, we will discuss cases centered on responsibilities to colleagues. Positive resolution of the issues presented by these cases is important for patient and client well-being.
This workshop on ethics offers six Continuing Education Credits for mental health and health care professionals.
Date: Friday, October 12, 2018 | 9:30 AM-4:30 PM
