Ethics lies at the heart of healthcare. It is essential for good clinical practice and permeates every area of management and care of patients, often without the healthcare professionals realizing it.

An understanding of the application of ethical principles is important for healthcare professionals to make decisions in the best interest of patients and their families (Robertset.al.2005).

Currently, clinical ethics education in Singapore tends to be more theory-based with less emphasis on clinical application. This workshop aims to close this gap by translating the ethical theories into day-to-day practices for healthcare professionals.

At the end of the course, participants should be able to:

  • Identify key ethical principles that arise in end-of-life care, focusing on a community setting
  • Describe the common ethical issues that arise in end-of-life care
  • Analyse common ethical issues that arise in end-of-life care using the relevant tools

Health professionals, including physicians, registered nurses, medical social workers and therapists, who care for patients at the end of life (EOL) and working in community care.
