You will explore the importance of ethics in clinical practice, issues relating to the role of the health professions, and conceptual models for ethical reasoning in the clinical context.
You will then examine the foundations of clinical practice including capacity, veracity, confidentiality, and autonomy as well as specific issues and populations within clinical practice, such as the care of children, and the dying. The program will also reflect on current debates in the Australian healthcare context, particularly issues associated with healthcare rationing.
Importantly, the program will also focus on theoretical and practical aspects of clinical ethics consultation.

· How important are ethical values and principles to clinical practice?
· What ethical issues arise in the practitioner-patient relationship? How should these be addressed?
· Are clinical ethical issues context and professional specific?
· What considerations ought to inform ethical decision-making in clinical practice?
