Ethical Dilemmas in Companion Animal Practice
Ethical aspects of cases can be challenging to navigate in time-poor clinical settings, and can lead to moral distress which has been associated with compassion fatigue and burnout.
Ethical dilemmas occur frequently in practice but may not always be recognised as such.
Being able to recognise ethical aspects of cases, and to employ decision making tools, can be very helpful in discussing these issues with clients and coming up with the best possible way forward. Examples from practice will be used to illustrate the use of these approaches.
Following this podcast, you will be able to:
Recognise ethical aspects of clinical cases
Better understand the impact of moral stress on self and colleagues and know where to get help
Use ethical decision making tools to guide your response.
This course includes:
Written notes, photographs and videos
Self-assessed multiple choice quizzes to test your knowledge and understanding
A discussion forum for conversation, debate and information exchange with your peers and tutors
An electronic certificate available for download upon successful completion of the course
The estimated time to complete this course is 10 hours and it will be open for 4 weeks.
