ELNEC Critical Care Module 4: Ethical Issues

Green Clock Hours: 1.00

It is rare that we do not witness at least one ethical dilemma a week, such as lack of goals of care, unknown decisional capacity, under-treatment of pain that promotes suffering, and so many other examples. Ethical issues and dilemmas are inherent in care provided to patients and their families in palliative care. It is important that all healthcare providers are aware of, and have access to, a wide variety of professional codes and standards that serve to facilitate resolution of ethical dilemmas. One of the most important and privileged roles you as a healthcare professional has is that you individually and collectively serve as advocates for patients and their families by fostering communication about healthcare decisions. This role of advocacy is vital, especially in critical care settings, as patients and their families depend on you to assist them in navigating a complex, confusing, and multi-layered healthcare system. The content in this course is applicable to nursing professionals in critical care settings as well as hospice and palliative care.
