This Level 7 module contributes to the development of knowledge and understanding of the ethical principles that should underpin clinical practice. There will be emphasis on ethical frameworks that can be applied to a range of common ethical dilemmas that healthcare professionals face in their day to day activities. Students will have the opportunity to engage in debate and discussion of some selected clinical scenarios such as the denial of long term oxygen therapy to those who continue to smoke, truth telling and letting people die.
