HA3300D – Healthcare Policy and Ethics
Discussion 05: Ethical Development
Imagine you’re the CEO of a major hospital system that’s recently come into a large endowment from a recently deceased philanthropist. The conditions on the endowment are that the hospital must use it for the ethical development of its staff members. You decide to use the money to create a professional development seminar that “fills the gaps” you see in your staff’s ethics education.
.What ethical issues or topics will your seminar address? Write 3 – 5 sentences describing it and the ethical questions at stake.
.Why is this the most important issue or topic to address? How will this “fill the gaps” in your staff’s training?
Your initial post should be 8 – 10 sentences in length and include an APA-style references list.
