Medical Ethics

9 januari 2025
  • Toine Korthout

Sooner or later, incidentally or frequently, therapists will meet in their contacts with patients circumstances where different options to act present themselves. In such cases it is often not a matter of choosing between just black and white, but merely between the one grey and the other. Arguments pro or contra can be put forward for any possible option. That what does justice to one principle might detract from the other, and vice versa. Norms prescribe how to act, but different norms might seem inconsistent towards each other. Nevertheless, choices must be made in given circumstances. Ethics may help you to make responsible choices. Medical ethics does so in cases related to patients and healthcare.

At this seminar we will explore ethics and participants will work together on practical issues preferably from their own practice. Both generally applicable standards will be reviewed as well as personal ones. These can be sharpened or polished in mutual consultation; in any case they are brought to better awareness.

This seminar promises to be a playful and highly interactive training day. Items learned will be applicable in all kinds of situations in one’s own practice.

Prior to the seminar, participants are asked to write down a few cases form their own practice in which they were faced with more or less difficult questions or considerations, and to bring them to the seminar.
