About this Unit
From 2020 this unit is replaced by 401408 - Ethical and Legal Issues in Health Care. This unit enables students to explore and develop an understanding of the ethical and legal issues important within contemporary health care. Through the use of case studies students will analyse profound ethical and legal challenges facing current health care that are equally important to health professionals, patients/clients and society generally. Critical thinking about these issues will be encouraged. Students will also be encouraged to consider differing theoretical perspectives in their examination of ethical issues. Additionally, students studying to work within health care, including complementary medicine, will develop a comprehensive understanding of the requirements for ensuring that their practice conforms to legal doctrines and ethical standards.
