206/306 Ethics Made Fun

Clifton Mitchell • Friday All Day

Clifton MitchellWe all want to do what’s ethical, but slogging through most ethics courses can be a tiresome bore. Not this time! This workshop (back by popular demand from the 2013 Symposium) features a game show that’s entertaining, engaging, and high spirited. Participants will be divided into teams and equipped with electronic remotes for shooting answers to a computer-generated scoring system.

We’ll explore some of the most perplexing legal and ethical quandaries, including:

  • Aspirational ethics, insurance fraud, treatment mandates, advertising, and duty to treat
  • Informed consent, confidentiality, court records, dual relationships, duty to warn, confidentiality, informed consent and malpractice
  • Child abuse, statutory rape, suicide, duty to warn, and scope of practice

Note: This workshop fulfills many state board requirements for training in ethics and risk management.

This session will continue with workshop 306.
