PHL 302 Ethics and Health Care

This course examines ethical issues arising in the delivery of health care at both the level of the practitioner/client relationship (confidentiality, informed consent, euthanasia, abortion) and at a broader social level (justice and resource allocation, new technologies, professionalisation and power). The course will draw on: a) general philosophical analysis of central concepts (good, right, justice, personhood, autonomy, authority, integrity, health); b) general theoretical perspectives (feminism, “the Biomedical model”, Utilitarianism, deontology); and c) student professional education and clinical experience in nursing.
