Summary:

Thirty-five years ago, few healthcare practitioners had heard the word “bioethics.” Now healthcare practitioners serve on ethics committees, articles about ethics appear in a variety of publications and the number of universities with advanced degrees in ethics continues to expand. How did bioethics become such an integral part of healthcare in the U.S.? No single event created the field of bioethics; instead, a cascade of events created the discipline and changed healthcare decision making. These events brought lawyers, legislators, philosophers and theologians together with physicians to insist on collective decision making, guidelines and regulations to enhance patient autonomy. This course will help healthcare professionals become better versed in the topic of bioethics, and it will help them identify and assess situations so that ethical responses can be chosen and enacted.

Objectives:

The goal of this bioethics continuing education course is to inform readers about ethical dilemmas and decisions, and help them identify and assess situations so ethical responses can be chosen and enacted. Studying the history of bioethics can help students understand how specific historical events revealed the need for these kinds of bioethical models and approaches, creating foundations upon which today’s ethical approaches are built. After completing this course, the student will be able to:
  • Describe the history and evolution of bioethics
  • Define the legal and medical terminology used in bioethics
  • List organizations that are concerned with ethical standards in healthcare
