New in 2019! - Ethics in Clinical Practice

New elective subject coming in 2019 to the Specialist and Graduate Certificate Courses in Palliative care 



Do you want a greater understanding of professional ethics in healthcare? 

Have you always wanted to understand the complexities of informed consent?


These and other ethical questions will be discussed in the new ’Ethics in Clinical Practice’ subject developed by the Centre for Palliative Care. 

This subject will be delivered in collaboration with the University of Melbourne as part of the Specialist and Graduate Certificates in Palliative Care.  

    Some of the key concepts that will be covered are:
  • Advocacy
  • Moral deliberation
  • Truth telling
  • Abandonment  
The subject will be delivered as a four day intensive:
  • Day one: Clinical ethics – the basics 
  • Day two: “Doing” ethics 
  • Day three: Communicating ethically 
  • Day four: Incorporating ethics into your daily practice  


Watch this space for 2019 Semester 2 dates!
