An ethical dimension in the care environment is present each and every time an oral health provider interacts with a patient. There is never a situation when the ethical dimension does not exist. Being able to recognize ethical issues and being willing to address them are crucial steps in the process of managing this dimension of patient care. Video case scenarios will be used to present and stimulate discussion about common and sometimes invisible ethical issues in the care of dental patients. As well, a model for decision-making considering the ethical dimension of care will be presented and used during discussion.

Learning objectives:

  • Describe the ethical dimension present in the clinical care of patients.
  • Distinguish the similarities and differences between clinical ethical and professional ethical issues.
  • Develop a decision-making framework to address ethical\concerns.
  • Understand the four-box approach for elucidating ethical issues in the clinical care of patients.

This course is designed for the entire dental team.

Co-sponsored by the American College of Dentists, MDA Insurance, and MDA Services.
