Managerial Ethical Issues in Healthcare
The complex interaction of ethical commitments on both personal and professional levels imposes significant decision-making obligations on managers, administrators, and staff in the workplace, especially the healthcare workplace. In addition to ethical requirements found in the work environment, individuals have their own values, morals, and ethics that can affect decisions and interactions with others. Students will have the opportunity to examine diverse ethical theories and reflect on how they may apply these principles in their respective organizational positions and in their daily lives. Using case studies, and panel discussions students explore a cross section of current ethical issues in healthcare.
