About this Unit
This unit will provide a comprehensive understanding of the ethical standards required by health care professionals when providing patient care with a focus on risk minimisation for patients. Recently litigated cases will be used as case studies to explore ethical dilemmas that health professionals can expect to arise over the course of their professional careers. Knowledge gained will greatly assist health professionals to deliver safe and ethical health care to their patients. Only health professionals regulated in Australia whose professional bodies have designated codes of conduct, codes of professional practice and / or codes of ethics will be utilised in this unit.
