Ethics and law play a critical role in effective healthcare practice. This course provides essential legal principles related to healthcare delivery, a framework for decision-making grounded in ethical standards, and a foundation in the inter-related dynamics of medical ethics and law for students studying nursing and allied health professions. The course will emphasize the necessary steps for ethical analysis and decision-making, together with the healthcare provider's legal responsibilities in providing care. We will review major ethical questions confronting healthcare providers and medical institutions, as well as applying methods of ethical analysis to ethical dilemmas.
