CBHX 315/316 Health Care Ethics

Required Course

The course applies ethical theories and principles to contemporary health care dilemmas. Students learn how ethical principles - such as autonomy, confidentiality, truth-telling, justice, beneficence, nonmaleficence, and informed consent - can be used to resolve particular ethical issues and specific cases, such as end of life, the allocation of health care, privacy, reproductive rights, testing and screening, biomedical research, and professional conduct. The course emphasizes critical thinking, case-based analysis, ethical decision-making and problem-solving.
